How Do Households Work? Examining plant use during the Late Chalcolithic at Çadır Höyük, Turkey
Author(s): Madelynn Von Baeyer
This paper presents archaeobotanical data from the Late Chalcolithic (LC) archaeobotanical assemblage at Çadır Höyük, a mounded site on the north central Anatolian plateau with almost continuous occupation from the Middle Chalcolithic through the Byzantine period. Architectural and metallurgical evidence indicate that during the LC, Çadır was developing as a regional rural center, which makes it an ideal site to study the role that households occupied during in emerging systems of social hierarchy and complexity. This study addresses how understanding the depositional and taphonomic processes that acted on the macrobotanical plant remains can inform studies on household subsistence economies, organization of labor, and differences in plant use between households.
