2009 SEASON REVIEW
Upper stories at Çatalhöyük – Ian Hodder
Çatalhöyük is an important Neolithic site near Çumra, Konya, Turkiye. Indeed, the importance of the
site has recently been recognized by the successful placing of the site on the Tentative List of
UNESCO World Heritage sites and we are working closely with the Ministry of Culture and
Tourism to get the site quickly onto the full list.
The aims of the excavation this year were to uncover some well-preserved burned buildings
in the South Area of the site (Figure 1). We have been concentrating our work in this area in
order to understand the development of the site through time. There is some evidence that
the whole of the site underwent major change in Level VI, half way through the 1400 years of
occupation. There is much burning of buildings in Level VI. There is also the appearance of
public open areas, with public ovens and much digging of pits to obtain clay, and then re-use
of the pits for rubbish. The occupation after Level VI is more dispersed, and the north part of
the site starts to be evacuated. Many of the distinctive characteristics of Çatalhöyük such as
the bull horns start to die out after Level VI. There are of course changes that lead up to Level
VI, but the fires at the end of this phase seem to be associated with an important shift in the
pattern of occupation.
