Dear Julie,

At the Epipalaeolitic / early Neolithic site of  Hallan Çemi (Turkey), 
concentrations of almonds were found.  At both Hallan Çemi and Demirköy, 
almonds and Pistacia cf. khinjuk / atlantica var. kurdica represent only a 
minor component of the whole assemblage (less than 1%).  However, ubiquity 
figures suggest that they might have been stored (they were found in more 
than half of the samples).  Please do not hesitate to get in touch directly 
if you need more details:  [log in to unmask]
