The Ancient Hittite Empire was formed in about the 17th century BC and fell in the 12th century BC during the Bronze age collapse. The Hittites had two written languages. One was hieroglyphic and the other cuneiform. Bothe remained untranslated until 1915 onwards when the Hittite language was slowly deciphered.
