Quite a while ago now I promised to share the final version of this illustration. Here it is, a simple isometric cutaway of the proposed new experimental houses. Three of the proposed buildings are from James Mellaart’s excavations and the fourth is a composite building, showing a variety of different features found in both the Mellaart and Hodder excavations. The plan is to build these house replicas over the next year for site visitors to explore. l may be overseeing the addition of the wall paintings to each house, depending on scheduling.
You can read a bit more about these experimental houses and the 2013 field season in the Çatalhöyük newsletter, downloadable here.
