(Re-recorded as of November 28, 2022)
First, we sing the wrath of Telipinu, which brought down countless ills upon the mortal world and ruined dinner in Hittite heaven.
Then, we continue our tour of the northern Fertile Crescent (alias Upper Mesopotamia, alias southeastern Anatolia, alias western Kurdistan), stopping in three villages: Hallan Çemi (to look at early pig management), Aşıklı Höyük (early sheep & goat herding), and Nevalı Çori (miscellaneous), as well as the earliest evidence for cattle herding in the same region.
Then: Pre-Pottery Neolithic villagers, having domesticated grain, apply the same logic to legumes: lentils, chickpeas, peas, & vetch.
Finally: Telipinu's miraculous return!
