Join the Archaeological Institute of America this November to learn about Dr. Clark Larsen's work at Çatalhöyük. The Neolithic is a period of fundamental changes in living circumstances, much of which is tied to the shift from a lifeway based exclusively on hunting, gathering, and collecting wild plants and animals to one where domesticated plant and animals form a significant portion of the diet. For Western Asia, the human remains of early farmers recovered from Çatalhöyük (7100-5950 BC) in south-central Turkey provide a highly contextualized setting for addressing key issues relating to living circumstances, conditions in a proto-urban setting, and the context in general for much of the world we live in today.
