Çatalhöyük, a famous Neolithic site in Turkey, is known for its large size, its spectacular wall paintings and other art, and its highly structured houses. It is also a nexus of many key issues in current archaeology: the roles of science and the humanities in archaeological theory and practice, public archaeology, and the intersection of politics and archaeology, for example. It is a key site for the understanding of animal domestication, Neolithic religion, gender relations in the prehistoric Near East, and the effects of aggregated settlement. In this course, we will use the site as a lens to examine these and other issues in archaeological practice in general and the Neolithic of the Near East in particular.
