Çatalhöyük has captured the imagination of the public and researchers for decades. The charm of the site is due in no small part to the work of the many illustrators who’ve visualised the archaeological record. These illustrators include Grace Huxtable, commissioned by James Mellaart in the 1960s to prepare now iconic pictures of Çatalhöyük’s buildings. In the 1990s, John Swogger joined the Project, elaborating the style and breadth of the site’s illustrative portfolio.
Today, Kathryn Killackey leads the illustration team at Çatalhöyük, developing visual materials for both non-specialist and specialist audiences.
