Chronology: The terminology for the Neolithic Period is not uniform across the Near East, primarily because archaeologists working in different regions devised their own terms for these early periods of settled farming. For example, in Mesopotamia, the term "Neolithic" gives way to "Ubaid" in the 6th millennium, while in Anatolia "Chalcolithic" (implying early stirrings of metallurgy within a primarily stone assemblege for tools) is the standard designation beginning ca . 5600. (all dates B.C.)
