'Hattusa' (URU''Ḫa-at-tu-ša'' ; ''Ḫattuša'') was the capital of the Hittite Empire. The site is located near the modern-day town and district center of Boğazkale (), formerly named Boğazköy, in Çorum Province in north-east Central Anatolia, Turkey, at a distance of 90 km from the province seat of Çorum. The region is set in a loop of the Kızıl River (''Marashantiya'' in Hittite sources and Halys in Classical Antiquity) in central Anatolia, about 200 km (125 miles) east of Ankara.
Hattusa was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1986.
This documentary reveals this advanced civilisation defeated the Egyptians and spoke a Germanic language. Translations of their scripts reveal similarities between their language and German and English. Such evidence seems to support the migration theory that explains the origin of the Germanic peoples.
