Çatalhöyük Geophysics

Catalhoyuk

In July 2010, in collaboration with L – P: Archaeology, the University of Southampton, and the Çatalhöyük Research Project I had the privilege of surveying along the East Mound at the site of Çatalhöyük, Turkey. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the site, in short, it’s an amazing Neolithic tell site in central Turkey most famous for dense living spaces and its spectacular preservation of wall paintings and art dating from 7,500 B.C.

The site has been reopened to archaeological investigation since 1993 by an international team of archaeologists led by Prof. Ian Hodder. More information on the amazing excavation can be found here at Çatalhöyük’s website .

For more information on the current geophysical study being conducted at Çatalhöyük, see my post.
