Summary
"... Çatalhöyük, in central Turkey, became internationally famous in the 1960s when an ancient town-- at 9,000 years old, one of the earliest in the world-- was discovered together with wonderful wall-paintings and sculptures, many featuring images of leopards." The archaeological finds included female figurines that suggested the possible existence of a "Mother Goddess" cult
