In the summer of 2007, some 6500 years after a fire destroyed the house where grain harvesting was taking place, the Upper Tigris Archaeological Research Project excavated the house at Kenan Tepe in southeastern Anatolia.  This paper examines numerous categories of artifacts and ecofacts discovered within this structure and in doing so attempts to reconstruct various aspects of the economy of this Ubaid household.  This analysis leads to a number of hypotheses about the nature of domestic production, patterns of subsistence and modes of cultural reproduction during the Ubaid period in northern Mesopotamia.
