Levent Atici (Anthropology), along with colleagues Suzanne Pilaar Birch of the University of Georgia and Burçin Erdoğu of the University of Thrace in Turkey, has published a research article in PLOS ONE. In the article they investigate Neolithic and Chalcolithic (8500-7000 years Before Current Era) animal management systems at Uğurlu Höyük on the Turkish island of Gökçeada in the northeastern Aegean Sea. Atici’s (PI) research, funded by National Geographic Society, focuses on one of the most revolutionary socioeconomic transformations in the history of humankind — the Neolithic Revolution, and sheds new light on the dispersal of fully-developed agropastoral lifeways of emergent early farming populations into Europe via Anatolia (present-day Turkey). They document that the first colonizers and settlers of Gökçeada were farmers who introduced domestic sheep, goats, cattle, and pigs to the island as early as 8500 years before current era, and that their animal management systems on the island clearly diverged from the mainland.
