@Ragman,
Or better yet. Read the assigned history textbook assigned by ones university professor or high school teacher.

@laurilynq,
When they realised that Hittite glue didn't bond very well when the temperature rose above 31c.

The very first day of summer that year, the whole continent experienced a mini heatwave and the empire collapsed within a matter of hours.

It was this major flaw that led to research into polymer based adhesives.

@laurilynq,
After 1180 BC, amid general turmoil in the Levant associated with the sudden arrival of the Sea Peoples, the kingdom disintegrated into several independent "Neo-Hittite" city-states, some of which survived until as late as the 8th century BC
