Dead Women Do Tell Tales is a ‘recombinant history’, made up of fragmentary microhistorical database narratives from the archaeological construction of Neolithic households in Southeast Europe and Anatolia. Many of the fragments that comprise this exploration of transparently entangling archaeological data and interpretation are drawn from the database of the Berkeley Archaeologists at Çatalhöyük (BACH) project, Turkey (Last House on the Hill database). Others draw upon data and media from the archaeological projects of Opovo and Selevac, both in Serbia and both of which figured heavily in the hypermedia Chimera Web. Dead Women Do Tell Tales is a work in progress and is constantly being updated.
