Abstract :
The beginning of the urbanisation process of the eastern and south-eastern Anatolia region consists of two phases; the Proto-Urban Period (5000-2600 BC) and the Early Urban Period (2600-1900 BC). The Proto-Urban Period is a formative time on the road towards urbanism and state societies in eastern and southeastern Anatolia. This period has been characterised by important social, economical and political organisations that are the first signs of nascent changes towards urbanism beyond the level of simple farming villages.
This paper presents an overview in order to understand the local aspects of development towards initial stages of urbanism in eastern and south-eastern Anatolia in the Proto-Urban Period.
