What are the implications of GΓΆbekli Tepe on the Neolithic transition theory?

Traditional consensus has been that invention of agriculture led to permanent settlements, which led to a transition of social organization from small hunter-gatherer bands with members in the order of 10 to larger communities with populations in the order of 100 and 1000.

But GΓΆbekli Tepe shows communities with members in the order of 1000 likely preceded agriculture with complex organization and central management. What are some accepted approaches to explain this?

How Should I Represent a fantasy people inspired by Neolithic Proto I-E people/Bronze Age Armenians?

Im doing a Hans Christian Anderson Style 18th century Fairy Tale setting for tabletop games. In the setting. European, Levatine, and North African analouges are refugees to a far continent due to some great catastrophe.

The far continent has two major mountain ranges, one rougly himilayan/andean, seperating the antarctic south from the hospitable north, and the other is Caucasian sized, seperating the wet east from the dry west.

in the central plateaus of the secobd mountain range, Id love to throw in a group of peoples simillar to late neolithic Proto Indo-Europeans/Early Bronze Age Urartians, but kind of fantasy them up to being on par technologically to the 18th century baseline.

As Armenian people, you seem like the best folks to ask how do do this in a respectful, cool as hell way.

Also, to go with the theme, are there like, Armenian fairy tales/ punitive legends i could look at? Thanks.

Thanks for your time, sorry if this is mega nerdy :p

Why was skull trepanning so popular during the neolithic? Do we know what its purpose was?

(I'm totally new to anthropology)

I have recently discovered that the practice of trepanning (drilling holes in a person's skull) appears to have been widespread during the neolithic in all continents. A frankly shocking percentage of the recovered skulls from that period have at least one hole in them, and apparently the majority of people who received this surgery were alive and went on to recover and live years after undergoing it.

What was the purpose of such a practice? I have read that some people think it might have been a ritual or a medical practice, but I'm unconvinced because it formed indepentently in too many areas of the world (are we sure it did? or maybe we have pierced skulls from, say, Upper Paleolithic, so the practive could have been created much earlier and then transmitted on for millenias? ). Also, it does not seems to be medically effective, or at least not to the extent necessary to justify such a widespread use of it. (Also: is my skepticism justified? Are my objections good?)

Thank you for answering, I just think this is very intriguing.

Edit: one more question: are there primitive tribes today that are known to use this practice?

Geoarchaeology career questions: Is it a vaible career with a masters and without a PhD? Are there any notable English language programs outside US? Geoarchaeology programs beyond the neolithic?

Hi I have a couple questions about Geoarchaeology as a career path. Preface: when I was studying for my BS in geology and anthropology, I was told by archaeologists to get a PhD or become a shovel monkey.

-Can you make a career in geoarchaeology with a masters degree? Alternatively I could get a degree in geomorphology or Quaternary geology.

By a career in geoarchaeology I don't mean a 6 digit USD salary, but work with job security that earns enough to support a hypothetical dependent and have some variety beyond where you are digging the hole.

-What are some notable English-speaking programs for geoarchaeology beyond the US?

-Which universities, research clusters, and journals focus on pre-Neolithic Geoarchaeology in Africa, Asia, and Oceania?

Thanks, B

Is there any consensus amongst archeologists and anthropologists about the origin, function and/or authenticity of the stone masks found in Israel that are purported to date from the Neolithic Period?

I remember coming across an article about unusual stone masks found in the West Bank and other parts of the Levant that are proported to be from the Neolithic Period, but also that there were serious questions as to the authenticity of these artifacts. Has any more research been done on these stone masks? What are some of the competing theories as to their origin and original use? Is there any relation between these masks and the famed plastered skulls that are roughly contemporary with them in terms of when they were made? There seems to be quite a bit of misinformation about these masks online from β€œalternative history” types so I’m curious as to what the scientific consensus on these intriguing discoveries are.

What would paleolithic and neolithic peoples have had as beverages?

I'm aware that alcoholic beverages were important as a way to have a drink that was safe, even if the why wasn't understood at the time, but I also know that many cultures never developed a staple alcoholic drink, and it seems like people did drink water even if proper water sanitation methods weren't widely known. I've read that some basic forms of herbal teas and fruit juices would have been consumed, as well as fat that has been liquified. But I have to assume all of these would be fairly regional.
