The Neolithic mound of C¸atalho¨yu¨k became internationally famous in the 1960s when an ancient town?one of the oldest in the world?was discovered together with wonderful wall paintings and sculptures, many featuring images of leopards. The excavations changed our under- standing of the early farmers who started the road to complex civilization, but many questions were left unanswered until the early 1990s when new research began under the direction of Ian Hodder.The book begins with a puzzle: leopards are a central part of C¸atalho¨yu¨k?s art, but virtually none of their remains have been found. In solving this mystery, the reader is led into the elaborate social and symbolic world of C¸atalho¨yu¨k?a world where people were buried beneath the floors of houses, later to be exhumed and decapitated, and the head handed down from generation to generation.
L'autore: Ian Hodder is Dunlevie Family Professor in the Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology at Stanford University. He has been Director of the C?atalho?yu?k Research Project since 1993.
