Sharon Steadman (Cortland) will present a talk, "Beyond the Frontier? Anatolian Village Life during the 4th Millennium BCE Uruk Period" to the Finger Lakes Chapter of the New York Archaeological Association (and guests) on Nov. 2nd at 6:30pm at Ithaca College, CNS Room 208.
The central Anatolian site of Çadır Höyük features Late Chalcolithic occupation contemporary with the expansive southern Mesopotamian Uruk system in the fourth millennium BCE. During this time fortunes at Çadır appear to have increased with the rise of the Uruk system, and experienced some level of collapse with the waning of the system. This presentation explores whether how the Mesopotamian system and a far distant Anatolian village might have been connected through intermediaries in the Uruk system’s frontier.
