Abstract and Keywords

This article presents data on the Chalcolithic of eastern Anatolia. After the end of the sixth millennium BCE and throughout the whole of the fifth, the cultural developments in the region are decidedly more difficult to establish because of a very serious dearth of information. The only site that might possibly document an occupation which could better clarify this phase is Tilkitepe. It appears likely that Tilkitepe Level II is a mixture of materials from lower and upper levels. Level I—the most recent—offers interesting material for the study of what might have been the cultural developments in this part of Anatolia in the fifth millennium BCE.

Keywords: Tilkitepe, pottery, cultural developments
