Our reinterpretation of the palaeoenvironmental setting of Çatalhöyük in central Turkey has been published in Journal of Archaeological Science.  We found evidence for different styles of channel deposition from those previously thought, and suggestions of drier conditions.  The paper can be downloaded for free from here until 18th November 2017, or feel free to e-mail me for a pdf.
