Human beings, who changed their hunter-gatherer and nomadic lifestyle, turned to produce in settled life and cultivate the soil, needed some tools as of the B.C 10,000s. Some of these are tools made of clay. In addition, the walls were plastered with clay and animal and human figurines were made. Clay has been used in making pottery, which has been among the basic needs of human beings for about 7 thousand years. The periods before the invention of writing are enlightened with the help of the pottery found in archaeological excavations today. Since the Neolithic age, fine craftsmanship from the most primitive method to advanced methods can be observed in Anatolia.
