Stanford scholar digs deep into human history at Neolithic site


 
Stanford archaeologist Ian Hodder is unraveling the origins of the human story at the 9,000-year-old Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in central Turkey.

Since 1993, Stanford archaeologist Ian Hodder has spearheaded the research and excavation activities at the 9,000-year-old Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in central Turkey. Hodder is the director of the Çatalhöyük Archaeological Project, the largest and best-preserved site of its kind and one of the most ambitious excavation projects underway in the world.

This summer, the project received a $390,000 grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the National Science Foundation to conduct radiocarbon dating at the site, which will help researchers further explore how humans settled down, formed large villages and domesticated animals in the area.
