"Catalhoyuk, in central Turkey, became internationally famous in the 1960s when an ancient town - one of the oldest in the world - was discovered together with wonderful wall-paintings and sculptures, many featuring images of leopards. The archaeological finds included female figurines that suggested the possible existence of a "Mother Goddess" cult." "Ian Hodder peels back the layers of history to reveal how people lived and died, how they engaged with one another and with the spirit world. Full of insights into past lives and momentous events, The Leopard's Tale is illustrated with images of the art, the artifacts, and the excavations at this world-famous site."--BOOK JACKET
