IN THE ANCIENT MIDDLE EAST
Aryans in the Ancient Middle East
In addition, the Aryans in the Middle East, most notably the Hittites, have
now been found to have been in that region at least as early as 2200
BC, wherein they are already mentioned in Sumerian literature. In
fact they derived their script from that of the third dynasty of Sumeria.
Any Aryan invasion into the Middle East has been pushed back some
centuries, though the evidence so far is that the people of the
mountain regions of the Middle East were Indo-Europeans as far
as recorded history can be traced.
The Indo-European Kassites of the
ancient Middle East worshipped Vedic Gods like Surya and the
Maruts, as well as one named Himalaya.
