ANAMED Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations, İstiklal Caddesi No. 181, Merkez Han, Beyoğlu, İstanbul


Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) celebrates the 25th excavation season of the Çatalhöyük Research Project with a multimedia exhibition that brings the site to life. Using experiment-based display features, including 3D prints, overviews of excavation areas, and immersive Virtual Reality, the exhibition animates the 9000-year-old Çatalhöyük settlement and sheds light on the work of the excavation team.

Çatalhöyük is a 9000-year-old Neolithic settlement located in central Anatolia. It was first settled around 7100 BC. More than 500 articles and books about the site will be on display in the ANAMED Library during the exhibition.

Founded in 2005, Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) grants fellowships to researchers specializing in Turkey’s cultural heritage, provides library services, organizes public meetings, hosts exhibitions and publishes scholarly works related to Anatolian civilizations. This exhibition was developed under the supervision of Ian Hodder and curated by Duygu Tarkan, with contributions of researchers from the Çatalhöyük Research Project.
