For Western Asia, the human remains of early farmers recovered from Çatalhöyük (7100-5950 BC) in south-central Turkey provide a highly contextualized setting for addressing key issues relating to living circumstances, conditions in a proto-urban setting, and the context in general for much of the world we live in today.
