At a time when most of the world's people were nomadic hunter-gatherers, Çatalhöyük was a bustling town of as many as 10,000 people.
"While people talk of the 'houses' of Çatalhöyük, they can equally be talked of as tombs. People lived their lives walking, eating, and sleeping on the bones of their dead ancestors."
They buried their dead beneath the floors of their houses

I posted about it somewhere before (blog, maybe)? but I like the links you've found! I also like the museum's website.
I volunteer at a museum, and I have to say that it's a fun and ever-changing experience!
