Alaca Huyuk or Alacahöyük is a Hittite archaeological site near present day Alaca in northern central Anatolia, Turkey. From the 14th century BC Alaca Huyuk was under Hittite rule. Alaca Huyuk was excavated by German archaeologists in 1910 who revealed the sphinx gates to the ancient city. Due to the intervention of the First World War, the excavations stopped and were resumed by Hamit Kosay in 1935 and continued until 1970. The ancient Hittite and earlier antiquities are housed in the Museum of the Anatolian Civilisations in Ankara.
