MEDIA and EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE in the USA

From the Middle East to the Atlantic Seaboard, the story of the First Farmers includes the oldest monumental buildings on earth.  There is quite a lot to be learned from them!  Ruins and artifacts from around the world are helping us understand changes that happened in very ancient times; changes that launched western civilization, in a shift of lifestyle most widely known as the NEOLITHIC REVOLUTION.
   
​On the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo, the legacy of an advanced prehistoric culture survives in monumental architectural and artistic achievement that offers us the most complete window on this pivotal era.   They give us a glimpse into another world.

As new learning emerges from the Göbekli Tepe excavations in southeastern Turkey, the study of Archaeology has come to include other sciences to better understand how we came to be who we are today.

By bringing experts and researchers together in international multi-disciplinary focus, ​The OTS Foundation is helping to forge new frontiers! 

NEWS - CALL FOR ASSOCIATES

The OTS Foundation for Neolithic Studies has undertaken development of a museum/learning center about the genesis of monumental architecture, the development and spread of agriculture, and the significant lifestyle changes that ensued.  Presenting Global Cultural Heritage, this is the story of the first built environment and a direct path of shaping contemporary life that now impacts the entire planet.  We will be representing the world's oldest buildings and the anthropology of their creation.  A USA location for the project is yet to be determined, although Florida is being considered.  This is a vast initiative for which presenting partners, advisors and volunteers are now being sourced.  Interested parties are encouraged to email: beginnings@OTSF.org
