Last House on the Hill printed editionis the final report on the excavations of buildings at the northern end of the large East Mound of Çatalhöyük, whose archaeological remains date predominantly to the late Aceramic and early Ceramic Neolithic of Central Anatolia, ca. 7000 BC. The excavations were carried out by a team from the University of California at Berkeley (BACH team) during the summers of 1997-2003. The research of the BACH project in this volume focuses on the lives and life-histories of houses and people, the use of digital technologies in documenting and sharing the archaeological process, the senses of place, and the nature of cultural heritage and our public responsibilities. This printed edition is mirrored by an online media- and data-rich digital edition of Last House on the Hill  [] that interlinks all the original data, media, analyses, and interpretation of the BACH project with the final synthetic contents presented in this monograph.
