Catalhoyuk  which  is  an  ancient  city   its  history  goes  back  till  7000 BC.
The  Neolithic  site  of  Çatalhöyük  was  first  discovered  in  the  late  1950s  and  excavated  by  James  Mellaart between  1961  and  1965. The  site  rapidly  became  famous  internationally due  to  the  large  size  and  dense occupation  of  the  settlement, as  well  as  the  spectacular  wall  paintings  and  other  art  that  was  uncovered inside  the  houses.
Since 1993  an  international  team  of  archaeologists, led  by  Ian  Hodder, has  been  carrying  out  new excavations  and  research, in  order  to  shed  more  light  on  the  people  that  inhabited  the  site.
