Formatted abstract
Speleothem samples such as flowstone, stalagmite and stalactites are one of the important
finds at Çatalhöyük, which they have been carried hundreds of kilometers from its source.
The “Çatalhöyük Speleothem Project” have been initiated with the aim of investigating
Çatalhöyük’s speleothems and identifying their provenance. In order to achieve this,
speleothem samples at Çatalhöyük have been recognized and documented, and caves
around Çatalhöyük have been investigated. Later, both selected Çatalhöyük speleothem
and cave samples of flowstone, stalagmite and stalactites have been analysed by ICP-MS
to recognize similar trace elements. In addition, the ages of samples have been obtained
by U-Th method to find similarities between the Çatalhöyük samples and speleothem
deposits from surrounding caves. The comparative results have been used to identify the
sources of Çatalhöyük’s speleothems.
