    The Hittites are named from their capital Hattusa, where the Hatti language was formerly spoken. IE was brought there by people calling themselves after their previous capital Kanesa or whatever it was. In such a way, we could call the Hittites 'conquered', albeit with the blood of the 'conquerors' in their veins too. Just like the Armenians.
    Well, actually Hattusa refers to the "Land of the Haitti". Well... I don't see it that way, but we have to learn to disagree. Just a note:

    "It is generally believed that the speakers of [Hurrian] originally came from the Armenian mountains and spread over southeast Anatolia and northern Mesopotamia at the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC"

    Can you explain me exactly how "Urarteans" who were invaded by Medians suddenly started to speak some Phrygian dialect?

    To be honest, I'm not massively interested in discussing the Armenian Question in this thread. THAT question is intimately bound with the question of the PIE Urheimat.

    What I DO want people to talk about here is the possible remnants of the three unique Caucasian families in areas beyond their present distribution, and their genetic links with other families further afield.

    Then please try to not open the topic, by bringing wrong examples
