ASIKLI HÖYÜK: VROEGE DOMESTICATIE EN VEETEELT
Asikli Höyük is an early Neolithic sile in Central Anatolia. Though analys is of macro-faunal remains, an attempt is made to establish the stage of animal exploitation. Using the faunal spectrum, age grouping of the major species, sex groupings and sizes to find out the exact stage of possible animal husbandry. The results show that the people of Asikli Höyük were intensively using sheep and goat and had a high degree of control over these animals. According to the theory about the possible courses of domestication as explained by risk reduction and least expenditure of energy, this stage occurs just prior to full domestication and fully-fledged farming.
