The 6200 BC “map” of Çatalhöyük in Anatolia uncovered in 190s by James Mellaart. This mural is thought to represent a nearby volcanic eruption and plan of the site. “One painting, he [Mellart] thought, seemed to represent a town plan of the Neolithic village, with an erupting volcano looming overhead.1” New scientific evidence confirms a contemporaneous eruption at nearby Hasan Dağ.
