This 15-minute video is part 2 of a tour that was taken of Okapi Island in Second Life a short time before we "pulled the plug" on it in response to Linden Labs removing the educational discount on land rental in Second Life, this doubling the rent. Okapi Island in Second Life was a mirror of the East Mound at Çatalhöyük, as it exists today, and as it may have looked in the past. Çatalhöyük is an ongoing archaeological project in Turkey, excavating, analyzing, and interpreting the remains of a 9000-year old Neolithic settlement. The Berkeley Archaeologists at Çatalhöyük (BACH) project started to build Okapi Island early in 2007 and gave it up in February 2012. In this second part of the tour you visit the reconstructed village in the southwest corner of the settlement mound, and the dance area where the archaeologists enjoyed their Thursday night parties.
