Volume: 43 Date: 2017
The earliest occupation at Uğurlu is characterised by the absence of pottery and the presence of flint and obsidian tools with pressure flaking technique. The site dates as far back as 6800 cal. BC and has yielded evidence of a fully Neolithic economy. There are only a few sites (Ulucak, Girmeler, Knossos, Çukuriçi) along the Western shores of Anatolia, as well as on the Aegean Islands, that are securely dated before 6600/6500 cal BC. This paper presents some preliminary results of the earliest occupation layers at Uğurlu.
