Boncuklu Site – 31 AUGUST 2013: FIND OF THE WEEK: DANCING IN THE TRENCHES

31 AUGUST 2013: FIND OF THE WEEK: DANCING IN THE TRENCHES

On this site we have many decorated plaques, many of which have grooves and were used as polishing tools including possibly as shaft strengtheners. The other plaques have an as yet undefined function but are equally decorated.

Today in Trench P we have found one of our most elaborate incised stones with sets of distinctive lines and dots which could be read as lines of people with raised arms. This decoration is sometimes interpreted as a dance motif. This stone plaque also has remnants of red ochre on it.
