Çatalhöyük - The North Shelter
Çatalhöyük - The North Shelter
The Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük, 45 km south of Konya, was first discovered in the late 1950s and excavated by James Mellaart between 1961 and 1965. The site rapidly became famous internationally due to the large size and dense occupation of the settlement, as well as the spectacular wall paintings and other art that was uncovered inside the houses.

Since 1993 an international team of archaeologists, led by Ian Hodder, has been carrying out new excavations and research, in order to shed more light on the people that inhabited the site.

This is the new North Shelter, covering part of the 4040 Area excavation, construction of which was completed at the beginning of the 2008 excavation season.
