New Neolithic cult centres and domestic settlements in the light of Urfa Region Surveys
Keywords: Sanlıurfa, Pottery and Pre-Pottery Neolithic (PPN), cult buildings, round buildings, domestic buildings
AbstractThe present study concerns Neolithic period cult centres and settlements discovered recently during surface surveys in the central district of Urfa (Sanlıurfa) region in south-eastern Turkey. The presence of T-shaped pillars was ascertained at Ayanlar Höyük and Kurt Tepesi cult sites. Other settlements are domestic settlements arranged around cult centre settlements. Some sites belong to Pre Pottery Neolithic, and the others to Pottery Neolithic. They are believed to be coeval with Göbekli Tepe and Nevali Çori cult sites.
