Anatolia (derived from Greek meaning "east" or "[sun]rise"), also known as Asia Minor (Medieval and Modern Greek: "small Asia"), the Anatolian peninsula or the Anatolian plateau, is a large peninsula in West Asia and the westernmost protrusion of the Asian continent. It makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. The region is bounded by the Black Sea to the north, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, the Armenian Highlands to the east and the Aegean Sea to the west.
