Other Comments

  • Radiocarbon dating
  • Were there settlements in the area that were contemporary with Neolithic Catalhuyuk? Did settlements exist earlier than Catalhuyuk that could provide a "prehistory" for it? When did human groups return to the area after the cold phase of the last glacial maximum? Were these groups sedentary or hunter/gatherers?
