From galaxies to planets, from continents to cities, from people to atoms, the universe around us exists and changes over time at vastly different scales. People also interact and communicate with each other within different scales, and thus many anthropologists and archaeologists use a “multi-scalar” approach to study human culture. Specifically, this resource will address how archaeologists use “multi-scalar data” to create a description of Çatalhöyük. This background information describes some history of the "multi-scalar" approach, and explains why the excavations at Çatalhöyük provide an important example of archaeology at multiple scales.
