Turkey, also known as Anatolia, has been the home of many great civilizations throughout history. From 10,000 BC to today, each civilization has contributed to Anatolia's culture and world history. Hittites invented the first chariots that made them a superpower of the time (2,500BCE). Phrygians who were famous for their king Midas, donkey ears, and golden touch, dominated central Turkey and built great tumulus (graves). Persians came into Anatolia with their unusual religion; Zoroastrianism and ruled for 200 years until Alexander the Great liberated Greek city states. When Romans controlled Anatolia, the population of the land was over 5 million. They built their great temples, theaters, fountains, aqueducts and decorated cities with beautiful mosaics. Byzantium added more on their predecessors’ contributions. They built edifice churches and palaces. When Ottoman Turks arrived in Anatolia, they blended their culture and experiences with earlier cultures.
