Settlements of the Central Anatolian Neolithic

"This project was aimed at creating a systematic database in which the excavated settlements of the Central Anatolian Neolithic (ca. 8500 - 5500 Cal BC) can be systematically compared and analysed, and with which new spatial methodologies can be applied to investigate this horizon. It has entailed: first, the production of a series of grid referenced AUTOCAD phase plans of the sites, where previously a variety of plans existed to various scales and with varying degrees of detail represented; second, on the basis of these plans the spaces and buildings in these settlements were measured; third, information from both textual and graphic sources on the types of finds and features present in buildings and their characteristics was fed into an ACCESS Database, together with their coordinates, making it possible to study the distributions of these finds and features across the settlements. The results of the analysis performed were published as: Düring, B. S. 2006 Constructing communities, Clustered neighbourhood settlements of the Central Anatolian Neolithic, ca. 8500-5000 cal. BC.
