Visible architectural remains on the surface in the North Area
Plan of architectural remains that became visible on the surface in the North Area after scraping in 1993-1995. This is a closer view than Figure 1.4 and shows the mud-brick walls emerging as the top 10 cm. of soil was scraped off. On the basis of the plan, Roger Matthews and colleagues assigned Space numbers to rooms that looked to be enclosed by the walls, and Building numbers that seemed to be a meaningful collection of Spaces. Among these assignments the BACH Area included Building 3 comprising Spaces 86 and 158, with three small cell-like Spaces at its south end. These spaces are described in detail in Chapter 1, and especially Chapter 4 and 5.
The plan was originally created as Figure 7.3 in Roger Matthews (1996) Surface Scraping and Planning. In On the surface: Catalhoyuk 1993-95, edited by I. Hodder, pp. 79-101.
