    Ancient builders arranged the stones of the monument to align with important directions, such as the northernmost and southernmost rising and setting positions of the Sun and Moon. In this way he succeeded in obtaining conjectural values for six cuneiform letters. On the other hand, the Royal Commission's role in excavation was bound to change from the s onwards. Grotefend now possessed a small alphabet, and with this he proceeded to read the word which always followed the royal name, and therefore probably meant king.

    These ambitious and important aims resulted in a classified card index, innovatory in its day, for every known site and structure in Wales. He came to the Royal Commission from a lectureship in engineering at Cambridge University. Inscriptions of Sargon have cleared up the difficulties attending the tenth and eleventh chapters of Isaiah's prophecies, and have proved that no ideal campaign of an ideal Assyrian king is described in them. The resulting book, Houses of the Welsh Countryside, which was brought out at the end of to coincide with 'Architectural Heritage Year',decisively demonstrated that the inventories could take yet another form, as national studies of a topic. He and William Wright identified the ruins at Boghazkoy with Hattusathe capital of a Hittite Empire that stretched from the Aegean Sea to the banks of the Euphratescenturies before the age of the Old Testament patriarchs.

    It was a small-sized relic resembling a seal. The first Schedule of monuments resulted from a nationwide inquiry among interested local antiquarian societies. These records documented archaeological sites and buildings of all periods, and the amalgamation created a substantial national archive which was renamed the National Monuments Record of Wales to reflect its unique scope and importance. By about the year ADBabylonian conquest had spread into the Indus basin, and many Greek scholars had already visited or settled. Grotefend noticed that the inscriptions generally began with three or four words, one of which varied, while the others remained unchanged.

The Commissions were Fresh Light from the Ancient Monuments book empowered to continue this established architectural work.

But the account of the Hittite Empire is not the only discovery of the last four or five years about which this book has to speak.
