Lithics and raw materials as source for mobility and migration in Neolithic and Chalcolithic periods: a case study from western Anatolia

This project investigates the nature and extent of trade networks in western Anatolia using Çukuriçi Höyük as a focal point and lithic objects as a focal material. The primary goals of this research program are to evaluate different models of raw material circulation and to determine possible technological influences between the regions of interest. This project will investigate and compare, technologies, techniques, artifacts, and raw materials through space and time to  make inferences about regional mobility and exchange, including technology transfer and the frequency of transport of readymade tools.
