Luwian Studies is an independent, private, non-profit foundation based in Switzerland. The sole purpose of the foundation is to promote the study of cultures of the second millennium BCE in the west of Asia Minor. The core thesis of Luwian Studies is that during the second millennium BCE there must have been a hitherto largely overlooked culture in the west of present-day Turkey. Taking this culture into consideration would result in new interpretation scenarios regarding the chronology of the events at the end of the Bronze Age. The foundation would like to encourage accurate and comprehensive explorations of Luwian settlement sites in order to complete our picture of Aegean prehistory. Those interested in Luwian Studies or even intending to participate actively are welcome.
