  3. Wonderful, a giant sperm cell fertilising a green fuzzy egg (Can you tell I've been working too hard today?).

  4. Ok you may have right, but since not many sites are covered with a roof contraction, it should be easy to figured out!!

  5. No guesses?? Well, I'm going to be online again tomorrow at 12 AM CET. Until then I give you a small hint: It's a Tepe in the country of Höyüks!

  6. Not much of a clue. I assumed that already. ;-)

  7. Well, much as I prefer Paul's innovative suggestion, my rather more boring answer is Arslantepe near Malatya in Turkey. Chalcolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age occupations, as well as late Roman and Byzantine. Capital of a small Neo-Hittite kingdom in earlier 1st mill.

  8. Arslantepe is correct. Well done Heather!
    Yes, Paul's view is fantastic :) (what an imagination)
    lol
    So it's your turn Heather.
    Don't let us wait too long!!
