The purpose of my research is to investigate human behavior during the Neolithization in the farming societies intra/beyond the Fertile Crescent in West Asia through studying various aspects like funeral practices and human behavioral features and cultures by regions. Studying the funeral practices of any society will provide evidence about the development of spiritual and symbolic thoughts in human society. Mortuary practices also provide information about social relations, habits, beliefs, and perception of life after death. Moreover, studying the location of the graves, the diversity of funeral practices in each society and the way of treating corpses after death, facilitate understanding of the social system in the society and the diversity of human groups associated with it. .

It is hoped that the current postdoctoral fellowship at The University Museum, The University of Tokyo with the financial support of the Japan Society for Promotion of Science would provide the opportunity to study wider regions beyond the Fertile Crescent. It is fortunate that UMUT is undertaking excavations of Neolithic sites in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan, which will provide the opportunity to conduct comparison studies between these sites. Hence, this study would facilitate understanding various aspects of life in the Neolithic societies and changes in subsistence strategies during the Neolithic period intra/beyond the Fertile Crescent.
