Catalhoyuk Neolithic ruins - Cumra, Turkey

Catalhoyuk is an archaeological wonder which was first unearthed in 1958. It was found to be a huge city complex where probably housed around 10,000 residents. There is an interconnected system of primitive homes and all appear to be purely residential, like one great Neolithic suburb. What was strange was that the site was completely free of any debris or garbage left behind by the former residents. The image here is a reconstructed example of one of the mud-brick built homes.
