Two well known Neolithic communities are Jericho and Catal Huyuk. Neolithic communities are known for their economy based on farming and stock rearing. Their roles in society were based on factors such as age and gender. People had been living in the community of Jericho for centuries, but suddenly, they decided to build a wall around the entire town.
The wall was constructed of stone, and it included a tower and a staircase. People who lived in the wall lived in houses shaped like circles, which were made of plaster and mud brick. The Catal Huyuk community was based on agriculture and built on alluvial clay.
The term Neolithic is generally tied to agriculture. This represents the time when grain cultivation and animal domestication was first introduced. Jericho is a city rich in Neolithic culture and history. Buildings are made of clay and straw bricks and held together by mud dried in the sun.
The village arose from small circular dwellings with burials in the floor and buildings. Catalhoyuk is another Neolithic settlement, which is comprised of domestic buildings and a lot of artwork and murals. The roofs of their homes provide a walkway into the village. Religious figures are also scattered throughout the settlement. Many of the figurines are deities of women.
