Traces have been found showing that women cared about fashion to enhance their beauty 10,500 years ago. Researchers have discovered stamps with geometric motifs that women stamped on their bodies, in addition to beads that they wore around their necks and arms.

“In our excavations we have found ornaments next to the skeletons of women, while in the case of male individuals they include bow points and hunting materials. Therefore, it can be concluded that women paid attention to their appearance in order to impress men«.
Boncuklu Höyük is located in Hayıroğlu in the Karatay district and was populated by the ancestors of people who lived in the Çatalhöyük settlement, 9,000 years old.

I am currently studying Journalism and Audiovisual Communication at the Rey Juan Carlos University, which has made me inclined towards the international section, including the study of languages. For this reason, I do not rule out teaching myself. I also like to practice physical exercise and spend a pleasant time chatting with my acquaintances and with new people. Finally, I enjoy traveling to know the authentic culture of each region of the world, although I admit that before I need to find out as much as possible about the place I'm going to visit, to fully enjoy the experience.
