by James Mellaart
Member of the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara
Last September Mr. Mellaart directed a small excavation at Hacilar, a village on the road from the Turkish town of Burdour to the west coast. He found rich stores of very early painted pottery among the remains of a spacious Chalcolithic village. In his view this discovery establishes the long-awaited link between the well-dated prehistoric sequence of Mesopotamia and the as yet unreliable chronology of the Greek Neolithic.
