Abstract:Recursive archaeological research surrounding the Neolithic of Southwest Asia is built upon and in turn structuring origin narratives that emphasize the importance of food production, households and house-based ties, and a change in symbolism during this period. Neolithic Çatalhöyük, a settlement that was formed through the accumulation of earthen architecture and continuously occupied for over 1000 years, has been interpreted to show the slow emergence of dominant households that reified and passed down their traditions with the maintenance and modification of features within the houses, such as wall paintings. My research approaches house building and maintenance at Çatalhöyük through a perspective of intimate knowledge. Intimate knowledge expresses the referential and embodied aspects of knowledge construction, which is born through the interaction of people to things, places, and themselves. I approach house building and maintenance as a social technology, where detailed attribute analyses of the building materials reveal intimate knowledge. Further, the referential aspect of intimate knowledge allows the engagement with materials from a perspective of the landscape, which I explored through the building materials. Building materials analysis has shown that different sources of earth were used to make different types of materials, and the choices and practices in their making were persistent through the settlement's history. This points to a shared knowledge in house maintenance, which was crucial act of dwelling. Therefore, a framework surrounding intimate knowledge at Çatalhöyük has shown that houses contained expressions of different pathways and experiences, different appropriations of intimate knowledge, and were not only represent emergence of "autonomous households" or "controlled access to material and immaterial resources". Such a perspective then provides a more symmetrical understanding of the various (and sometimes contradictory) practices that shaped the past, directing one away from "origins" to practice and the celebration of its variability.
