In a starry night of autumn Cassiopeia, Andromeda, Perseus, and prominent star cluster Pleiades (just at the horizon) rise above the ancient city of Hattusa, a World Heritage Site near Bogazkale, Turkey. The earliest traces of settlement on the site are from about 8000 years ago, while the city's brightest era was in the 14th century BC as the capital of Hittite Old Kingdom. Tunc Tezel
