The Çatalhöyük sequence: the leopard changes its spots
UQ School of Social Science invites you to attend a public lecture by one of the world’s most influential archaeologists, discussing his ground-breaking work at one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, Catalhöyük in Turkey. In this lecture Professor Ian Hodder from Stanford University will discuss recent research that shows major change through the occupation sequence at Çatalhöyük, famous Neolithic settlement in central Turkey.
The sequence of occupation in the 7th millennium BCE at Çatalhöyük has often been described as slow and stable, but recent research has shown that there was continual and marked change in all aspects of the evidence. The talk will integrate specialist information from a large number of archaeological sub-disciplines in order to build a picture of the changes and why they occurred.
