One Neolithic settlement that had been occupied from the middle of the 8th millennium until the middle of the 7th millennium BC is known as Catalhuyuk.
Catalhuyuk is near Konya in south central Turkey.
It had long been supposed that the origins of agriculture would be discovered in those parts of the Near East which contained habitats peculiar to the wild ancestors of modern grains, etc. Today it is generally accepted that the people of sites like Catalhuyuk played an important part in the spread of early farming.

 Origin of the Kilim //\\ AmericanKilim.com //\\   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
This ancient city, whose economy was mainly agricultural, is one of the world’s oldest settlements and ongoing excavations continue to reveal exciting finds such as flint and bone tools, stone and clay statuettes, and shell beads.
This tantalizing snippet of information gleaned from Catalhuyuk suggests that those Neolithic people sheared the wool from their sheep, spun it and then by weaving it on wooden looms produced the earliest kilims.
The artistry and craftsmanship which produced the kilims hinted at in the Catalhuyuk excavations, admired by Marco Polo, portrayed by European artists, and then later sought after by modern tourists are the work of Turkish women.

Catalhuyuk is often cited as the earliest known sizeable human habitation.
The preservation of artifacts and, to some extent, the environment of a culture of this age has stimulated much discussion and interest across many different interest groups.
The Museum of Anatolian Civilization has a very good Catalhuyuk exhibition but new finds are emerging all the time and each item contributes to the discussion as to what was going on almost 10,000 years ago.

Before the Mesopotamians, Minoans or Egyptians, the people of Catalhuyuk created one of the first cities known to man. Built from the profits of their trade in obsidian, the glassy volcanic rock used to make early implements, this was a flourishing settlement that has forced archaeologists to rethink the chronology of civilisation.
James Mellaart (left, at Catalhuyuk in the early Sixties), who unearthed the city and its stunning wall paintings, recalls the stages of a momentous discovery.
Cornucopia first major article on Anatolian prehistory tells the story of Mellaart's momentous discovery and includes photographs of life and work on the dig and in the surrounding villages of the Konya plain, as well drawings of the murals during the excavation.

Last summer I visited Catalhuyuk in the Anatolian planes of Konya in Turkey where, in 1960, the archaeologist James Mellaart found and started to excavate a 9000 year old city.
In his new approach, he welcomes other disciplines and I therefore plan to work next to his team and produce a series of works inspired by, and responding to, what the team is excavating in Catalhuyuk.

At a higher level of both awareness and humanity we are turning to this concept again, but now it is called "passive design."
The living quarters of such ancient cities as Catalhuyuk, on the Anatolian Plain of Turkey, seem to have incorporated elements of defense as well as comfortable living, and it is not surprising to find comparable dwellings in the modern world.
There is no doubt that Catalhuyuk was a city in every sense of the word and its structure and function are understandable, even if all the individual tools are not.

Would Witchcraft be any less of a valid faith system if it were to be proved that it was created in the 40's and 50's by Gerald Gardner?
Chas: Ancient people cannot help us, and we just look silly relying on outdated scholarship (Sir James Frazer, or Mellaart's writings about Catalhuyuk).
Religious people always look for a Golden Age.

Turkey deserves to be better studied by Westerners, most of whom know little if anything about modern Turkey.
But it may come as a surprise to some to discover that they do have knowledge of a more ancient Turkey, albeit learned under the guise of religious training (Nicea, Paul of Tarsus, Galatia, Hittites) or as studies in the Classics (Olympus, Ephesus, Troy), or perhaps even studies in Anthropology (Catalhuyuk, Hacilar).
Real “History” students though will no doubt have touched on some other aspects of Turkey’s turbulent past - perhaps the Mongol invasions, the Crusaders
