That the capital of the Hittite civilization of Çorum Alacahöyük'teki ruins excavations, is known settlement in the region began 1500 years, proving once three separate fragments of coarse pottery were found.
Thus, the Alacahöyük past, present 8000-9000 years ago, the late Neolithic Age to extend understood.
Department of Archaeology at Ankara University Faculty of Language, History and Geography faculty members, Prof. Alacahöyük Excavation Area.

Explaining that there is a development of excavations shed light on Alacahöyük'teki Çınaroğlu date, the region is known settlement began 1500 years, proving once they found three separate pieces of ceramic container, these findings give rise to the mound, said that based on the history up to the late Neolithic Age.
Excavation work in 2006 Alacahöyük Hittite Anatolia, the oldest known irrigation dam Dam'' of'' re starting to hold water, reminiscent of the opening of the local people use for agricultural irrigation Çınaroğlu, said:
'' As a result of excavations 7000-7500 years ago, the first settlement in the region based on the known to the Chalcolithic Age. This year, three new part in the excavations of the construction technique, rude workmanship, and good unbaked dough is mixed with coarse sand particles form, the present Anatolian Neolithic period 8000-9000 years ago turned out to reflect the properties of the ceramic repertoire. Thus, since Alacahöyük moved as far back as 1000-1500 years.
Digging these parts in our work, Urfa Gobeklitepe on stone blocks and the like Burdur Kuruçay Mound fully reflect the Neolithic ceramic repertoire. Thus, the first resettlement Alacahöyük'teki, we have to understand traced back to the late Neolithic Age. 8000-9000 years before present understanding of the history of Alacahöyük hung just for this region, but is also extremely important in the history of settlement in Central Anatolia. Excavation work in future also works to bring innovation to the history of Anatolia, the former seems to have a definite.''
