History of TURQUIA
The origins of the Turkish people go back to the origins of humanity. In Asia Minor, Paleolithic remains have been found that show that in 6,000 BC. C. the step of the nomadic tribes took place, with the hunting fundamental means of survival, to the sedentary tribes dedicated to the agriculture.
This change in way of life got that already in the sixth century BC. Some societies with their own cultural characteristics, such as the Hattis in Anatolia, will be developed. From the 5th to 3rd centuries BC the Assyrians, located in Kultepe, had deployed an important commercial network with Mesopotamia where all kinds of products were imported and exported.
The modern Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923 by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War. The defeat in the conflict meant the loss, under the Treaty of Sèvres (1920), of Syria, Palestine, Mesopotamia and Arabia, with which Turkey was circumscribed to its current borders. The granting of Izmir to Greece for 5 years caused the Turkish nationalists, led by Atatürk, to oppose and wage a war in which they succeeded in expelling the Greeks.
