YESILOVA, TURKEY—Archaeologists have found the head of an 8,000-year-old statue at the Neolithic site of Yesilova in western Turkey. Dig leader Zafer Derin thinks the figurine could depict a fertility goddess and might have once been kept in a home to insure the health of children. The archaeologists also unearthed a seal in the shape of a shoe.
