Catal Huyuk Gallery
Catal Huyuk was a very large Neolithic and Chalcolithic proto-city settlement overlooking the Konya Plain, southeast of the present-day city of Konya, in Turkey from 7100 BC to 5700 BC. The site was first excavated by James Mellaart in 1958
James Mellaart later led a team which further excavated there for four seasons between 1961 and 1965. These excavations revealed this section of Anatolia as a centre of advanced culture in the Neolithic period.
Excavation revealed 18 successive layers of buildings signifying various stages of the settlement and eras of history. The bottom layer of buildings can be dated as early as 7100 BC while the top layer is of 5600 BC.
In July 2012, it was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
