Population growth was not linear but rather reflected local circumstances, both external and internal.

Recent developments in the use of more stable feldspar signals in the luminescence dating of sediments offer the possibility of obtaining accurate feldspar luminescence ages for ceramic artefacts; this is especially interesting in locations which do not provide suitable quartz extracts.
Here we examine the application of the stable infrared stimulated luminescence signal measured at elevated temperature (in this case 290°C; p IRIRC dating, typology and seriation these units were deposited between 700 and 900 BCE.
It’s well worth a read if you are interested in the Natufians and other ancient farming groups from the neolithic.
Interestingly, it observes that the Anatolians of Catal Hoyuk seem very different to thsoe of Cayonu.
