Description

Cet ouvrage présente l'étude détaillée de la pierre taillée de Çatalhöyük-West Mound, silex et obsidienne, dans une approche pluridisciplinaire et multi-scalaire. L'approche pluridisciplinaire comprend la caractérisation macroscopique et minéralogique de la matière première (spectroscopie infrarouge); la géologie et la géomorphologie (évaluation des ressources locales disponibles et paramètres géodynamiques); et une étude typo-technologique fine (nature des productions et modalités d'acquisition). L'étude de ses productions lithiques a permis de souligner des changements dans les aspects économiques et techniques des productions et systèmes d'échange au début du Chalcolithique (ECAIV). Cette publication discute la nature des changements à Çatalhöyük du Néolithique au début du Chalcolithique, la nature des productions lithiques confrontant les productions locales sur silex aux productions spécialisées sur obsidienne et silex dans une perspective locale et régionale. Elle permet de discuter les changements socio-économiques observés à cette période de transition. This book presents a detailed study of the West Mound Çatalhöyük chipped stone, flint and obsidian, using a pluridisciplinary and multi-scale approach. The pluridisciplinary approach is developed using macroscopic observations and analytic tools of mineralogy (infrared spectroscopy); geology and geomorphology (the local resources available and geodynamic patterns); and a typo-technological study (the nature of productions and the modalities of procurement). The global lithic study permits one to address the economic and technological changes in the chipped stone production and exchange system during the Early Chalcolithic period (ECAIV). This study contributes to the discussion of the nature of the technological changes through time at Çatalhöyük from the Neolithic to the Early Chalcolithic period, and the nature of lithic productions, from local and domestic productions of flint to specialized production of flint and obsidian from a regional perspective. It also permits discussion of the socio-economical changes observed during this transitional period.

AUTHOR
Dr. Ostaptchouk est spécialiste lithique au Çatalhöyük-West Mound Project et chercheuse associée au Département de Préhistoire du MNHN (Paris). Entre 2009-2012, elle termine sa thèse sur les matières premières et changements typo-technologiques de la pierre taillée au début du Chalcolithique en Anatolie centrale par une approche pluridisciplinaire. Dr. Ostaptchouk is a lithic specialist for the Çatalhöyük-West Mound Project and an associated researcher at the Department of Prehistory-MNHN (Paris). In 2009-2012, she wrote her PhD on chipped stone raw material and technological changes during the Early Chalcolithic period in Central Anatolia using an inter-disciplinary and multi-scaled approach.REVIEW
'This book - which is very detailed with regard to techno-typological attributes and fully quantified data - will fill a major gap that will be appreciated by many working in Eastern Mediterranean prehistory.' Dr Tristan Carter, McMaster University
'The author is an excellent lithic analyst, exceedingly thorough in her work and interrogation of the data, while the artefacts themselves were retrieved by a very skilled team using high-quality recording techniques. In short the integrity of the data and its presentation/analysis is first class.' Dr Tristan Carter, McMaster University.
