Towards configuring the neolithisation of Aegean Turkey

Çiler Çilingiroğlu, Canan Çakırlar

Abstract


Increasing field work in the  ̇Izmir region has produced much sought tangible evidence about the ways in which food-producing communities emerged in the Aegean. Focusing on the archaeological and zooarchaeological data from Ulucak and neighboring sites, the authors discuss the possible mechanisms of initial farmer-herder dispersals into the region. The authors stress that the lack of pre-Neolithic strata in the eastern Aegean impedes a full understanding of forager-farmer interactions in the early Holocene.


Keywords


emergence of farmer-herders; Neolithic Aegean; West Turkey; leap-frog colonisation model
