heal.abstract
The present dissertation was written as part of the MA in the Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean Studies at the International Hellenic University. At the beginning of the Neolithic period, the first permanent settlements were formed and new relations were developed between the communities and the landscape. The new Neolithic way of life must have affected indigenous foragers who interacted with early farmers that settled in the Northwestern Anatolia. It seems that from the middle of the 7th millennium onwards, a mixture of newcomers and existing local population resulted in a gradual transition from ‘Mesolithic’ to ‘Neolithic’ societies that led to the decline of the hunter-gatherer lifestyle that had been previously a characteristic factor of the region. The new way of life was followed by social changes in Neolithic societies. Aspects of the social organization of the Neolithic communities and the relationships between their members are considered to be inscribed in the intra-site organization of the settlements and the architectural form of the houses. The aim of this dissertation is to explore and present the development of the Neolithic house from the subterranean structures (pit-houses) to the above the ground buildings, as evidenced in the archaeological record. The study focuses on the area of the Marmara region, especially on the area of Northwest Anatolia, where long lasting settlements were discovered that show the existence of subterranean and above-ground houses. In addition, Neolithic settlements in the regions of Aegean Thrace, Eastern, and Central Macedonia are examined. The emphasis of the analysis is put on the settlements, their intra-site organization, and the architecture. For the purpose of this study English, Turkish and Greek bibliography was used, as well as information from the internet. Keywords: Neolithic settlements, Architecture, Marmara region, Pit-houses, Above-ground houses. Georgia Adamidou Date February 2018
