Catalhoyuk is divided into two sections: western and eastern settlements. The settlement in the east dates back to the Neolithic Age, while the west dates back to the Chalcolithic Age. Catalhoyuk provides insight into the era's social life. When a family's lifetime was over, the house was filled with earth, and a new house would have been built on top of it. The discovery revealed that humans during that time frame were involved in farming as well as foraging and hunting. The paintings that were discovered on the houses' walls revealed information about people's beliefs and culture, and stamp seals made of terracotta demonstrate that the concept of today's property originated at that time. Catalhoyuk was abandoned before the Bronze Age, and it has been on the Unesco World Heritage List since 2012.
