ÇATALHÖYÜK, TURKEY-- This month, a group of Israeli and Palestinian archaeologists and educators, working together on a U.S.-funded project to protect and promote their shared history, met in south-central Turkey. The visit was prompted in part by the group's desire to learn the latest results from 9500-year-old �atalhöyük, which has been under excavation by a British-American team since 1993. But the dig's conference room also provided a neutral place for the group's initial meeting.
