Showing perspective of the site is very important. What does this area around Catal Hoyuk look like today? How did it look over 9,000 years ago? How do scientists discover this?

These are all questions that you can learn more about at the Catal Huyuk website and by studying these pictures at Flickr. Many of the techniques are straightforward and are used by historians and genealogy buffs to find the age, climate or setting of more current archaeological sites like old homesteads or cemeteries.
