Oh.. and remember, the decapitated heads were determined to be postmortem . So what could look like sacrificial Sacrifice to some .. might be a practice done out of great respect for the dead. I would guess, since there is only so much room Under a temple,, that the space there was reserved for, If found, highly important people, and the rest got also got a respectful sendoff ,, via Vultures? What they did to an enemy is anybody's guess?
I'll have to look for some paper about climate change in Anatolia to say something serious about this. But even at 12,000 BP Anatolia appeared to be quite densely populated.
The decapitations were in some places determined to be postmortem, in other places people were killed and then decapitated (they found thick layers of blood).
