Anatolia, known as Asia Minor Asian Turkey, refers to an ancient peninsula that once had rigorous cultural contacts with numerous Ancient Near Eastern cultures. Anatolian bronze weapons present a strong stylistic and topologically adherences to these Luristan bronze prototypes that were produced during the Iron Age.
