Summary

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. The analysis will focus on both descriptive and quantitative data from samples dating to around 3600 B.C.E. from a communal cooking area at Çadır. It will examine how archaeobotanical analysis can be used as a line of evidence to determine storage patterns at sites, labor organization, and fuel choice using models of plant use developed from ethnographic work. The paper will also discuss how other lines of evidence, like architectural analysis, can inform or can be informed by the archaeobotanical remains.
