Travel to the Neolithic period by Experiencing the Unesco World Heritage Site of Çatalhöyük

The Virtual Reality (VR) project presents an immersive recreation of the Çatalhöyük settlement. Equipped with VR headsets, visitors will be transported back into a Çatalhöyük building to observe life 9,000 years ago. Visitors will enter the Neolithic period, walk around the mud-brick houses of Çatalhöyük, virtually ‘pick up’ objects from the floor, witness the honeycomb-like architectural style from the rooftops, and see the landscape of the Konya plain.

This VR experience is based on and adapted from the [LEAP] Project and has been developed as part of the exhibition "The Curious Case of Çatalhöyük" by Koç University ANAMED.
