  15. 15. Approximately between 7500 BC and 5700 BC. An average population of between 5,000 and 7,000. The sites were set up as large numbers of buildings clustered together. The inhabitants lived in mudbrick houses that were crammed together in an aggregate structure. There are no footpaths or streets. Houses were clustered in a honeycomb-like maze. Most were accessed by holes in the ceiling, with doors reached by ladders and stairs. The rooftops were streets. The ceiling openings also served as the only source of ventilation. 15

  20. 20. NEOLITICH ON EAST MEDITERRANEAN SEA :JERICHO - The village was surrounded by a wall (3.6 metres high and 1.8 metres thick) but for first time they built a tower to defend themselves. - Jericho was near the Death Sea and they used to trade with salt. - Jericho had already 2.000 people.

  21. 21. Founded 9600 BC. The town contained round mud-brick houses. With the past of the time the architecture changed to rectilinear buildings made of mudbricks on stone foundations. The dead were buried under the floors. This population had domesticated wheat, barley an d pulses. The construction of the wall and the tower indicates a complex social organization. Population as much as 2000 people. 21
  22. 22. - Archaeologists found some skulls decorated as human heads. - They buried their deads under the ground of the houses. 22
