Since 2005, the Hittite capital Hattusha in Central Anatolia boasts a newly added attraction. In autumn the reconstruction of a 65-m long stretch of the mudbrick city walls reached completion. Three segments of curtain-wall seven-to-eight meters high and two defense towers reaching a height of 12 to 13 m now convey the impression of how well fortified the city really was-and how impressive a sight it must have been to visitors of the period. This project represents the first major reconstruction in unbaked mudbricks; indeed, worldwide there are few projects comparable in dimension.
