Asia Minor and Anatolia are the same designation. It is the peninsula between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean and comprises the largest part of Turkey. Scholars believe Ancient Germans migrated from Northern Europe to Anatolia, assimilated with pre-Hittite tribes then later fought for territories in Egypt, Babylonia, Palestine, Syria, etc. Relations between the different tribes created early genetic diversity.
