Julie Near

Julie Near is a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley. She is assisting Dr. Hastorf and is writing her doctoral dissertation on the uses of plants at Çatalhöyük. In the dig house you often see Julie bending over her microscope, identifying broken fragments of burned seeds and other plant parts. Julie trains and supervises women from the nearby villages who do the important work of sorting delicate plant remains from other finds.

All staff profiles were compiled in 1998 and may not be current today. We hope to give you a glimpse at some of the people who work and have worked at Çatalhöyük but for more up to date information about the current Çatalhöyük team visit the University of Cambridge Çatalhöyük website
