Çatalhöyük Excavations

We have been supporting Çatalhöyük archeological excavations, accepted as one of Anatolia’s most important archeological finds dating back to Neolithic age, as the main sponsor since 1997.

Çatalhöyük was discovered by James Mellaart in 1958 and excavations were carried out between the years 1961 and 1965. Since 1993, excavations are led by archeology professor Ian Hodder. Some of the finds are exhibited in Konya Archeology Museum, others are kept under protection.

In 2012, Unesco included Çatalhöyük Neolithic city in its “World Heritage” list.
