When speaking of Western Anatolia, one almost instantly thinks of sites such as Troy, Panaztepe or Miletus. However, there is much more than just the coast! Based on an overview of the ceramic projects in which the author is currently involved the lecture will offer a complex picture of Western Anatolia in the Late Bronze Age, both along the coast, but also further inland. It will be also attempted to discuss the potential link between the Hittite geography and the actual archaeological finds.
