Contextualising the Neolithic

Regional Approaches to Sedentism and Domestication in the Konya Plain

December 8, 2023 – December 10, 2023

British Institute at Ankara, Tahran Caddesi 24, Kavaklıdere, 06700 Ankara (10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH)

Intense and sustained research focussed on a well-defined, circumscribed region, across several decades and through numerous archaeological and palaeoenvironmental projects has created a uniquely rich and well contextualised evidence base for understanding the Neolithic in the Konya Plain (central Turkey). This provides an exceptional opportunity to analyse questions such as sedentism and domestication from different analytical perspectives and at different spatial scales, from the household to the interregional level.

This conference, co-sponsored by the British Institute at Ankara and Bilkent University, aims to assess our current models of the development of the Neolithic for the area through the integrated perspective of excavation, survey, geoarchaeological and palaeoenvironmental research, and a range of analyses of animal, plant, human and material culture, often employing innovative scientific approaches. There has been a long-term commitment to public outreach and community archaeology and these aspects of work in the Konya Plain will also be highlighted.
