Bronze Age Palace from Mysterious Mitanni Empire Discovered

The Mitanni Empire existed from roughly 1550 BC till 1300 BC. Called Hanigalbat by the ancient Assyrians and typically called the Hurri by the Hittites. This mysterious empire played a major role in the history of the ancient near east. Recently it has been announced that 10 cuniform tablets have been found at the site of a former Mitanni palace that has been recently excavated.
