The ‘Shrine of the Hunters’ is an archaeological reconstruction of a level 5 house from Çatalhöyük. It was originally excavated in the 1960’s by James Mellaart and aside from a few informational illustrations, has had surprisingly little coverage. One of the most decorated houses ever found at the site, this piece began as the focus of a MSc Dissertation by Grant Cox during the Virtual Pasts course at the University of Southampton and has since evolved into an animation.
