Welcome to Catalhoyuk

I've just noticed that a video shown in the visitor's center at the 9500 year old early farming site of Catalhoyuk in Turkey--the subject of my book "The Goddess and the Bull" (available in both hardback and paperback)--is now available on YouTube. The beautifully-voiced narrator is Shahina Farid, the project's field director. (The music is nice too.)

Once you finish watching this video, click below the replay screen for a number of other videos about Catalhoyuk and related topics.

Archaeology in danger: According to this report, the proposed Rosemont copper mine near Tucson, Arizona could harm archaeological sites in the area.
