Abstract

The landscape immediately surrounding the site of Catalhoyuk preserves topographic and ceramic evidence dating from prehistoric times to the present day. This article presents the results of a programme of investigation of the landscape conducted through analysis of remote-sensing, map and field-survey data, with particular emphasis on the first and second millennia AD. The concept of taphonomy, usually defined in archaeology as the process of change after deposition, is applied to the transformation of the settled landscape from its Neolithic origins to its present status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Taphonomy serves as a linking concept as we explore how past landscapes are mobilised and translated into the ever-changing present.Catalhoyuk yerleşiminin hemen cevresindeki alan, tarih oncesi zamanlardan gunumuze kadar topografik ve seramik kanıtları sunmaktadır. Bu makalede, uzaktan algılama metodu, harita ve yuzey araştırması verilerinin analizi yoluyla ve ozellikle M.S. birinci ve ikinci bin yıllara yoğunlaşarak yapılan bir araştırma programının sonucları sunulmaktadır. Arkeolojide, genellikle birikim sonrası değişim sureci olarak tanımlanan tafonomi kavramı, bu calışmada yerleşilmiş arazinin Neolitik kokenlerinden gunumuzde UNESCO Dunya Miras Alanı statusune donuşmesine uygulanmaktadır. Tafonomi, gecmişte arazilerin nasıl değiştiğini ve gunumuzde surekli değişen bu hale nasıl geldiğini gosteren bir geciş kavramı olarak hizmet etmektedir.
