CHALCOLITHIC AGE ( 5000 - 3000 B.C.)

The first copper implements as well as stone tools were used widely during this period. The Anatolian civilizations fell behind their peers in Egypt and Mesopotamia at this age. Still a number of Central Anatolian settlements like Hacilar, Beyce Sultan, Fikirtepe,Yazirhoyuk and Buyuk Gollucek are known to be famous cities with various ceramic artefacts remaining till this day. There are various pieces on display in the Ankara Anatolian Civilizations Museum.
