Thanks Lordo, enjoyed that.

''World’s Oldest Mosaic Uncovered in Central Turkey''

...near a site nine thousand years old.

https://greekreporter.com/2022/08/01/wo ... ic-turkey/

The team in Yozgut made their discovery just a month after Neolithic-era homes were found during excavations carried out at Catalhoyuk, the renowned archaeological site located in what is today Turkey’s Çumra district in the province of Konya.

The site is near the ancient site of Iconium, or what was once the Greek city of Ikonion.

A settlement dating all the way back to the “transitional period” from the 12th to the 11th century BC, was further exposed to the north. Part of a very well-preserved house was uncovered, with a succession of floor-levels, with limestone floors resting on a layer of small pebbles, a hearth and a possible artisanal area.

The French team at Kition- Pampoula worked under the direction of Dr. Sabinne Fourrier from Lyon2 University during their 2021 dig.
