I don't think its an unreasonable question. I am sorry if that offends you. Georadar surveys show that the area currently being excavated is at most 25% of the full size of the site. All areas seem to show the same large stone pillar architecture.

Given the size and the overlap in time and location with the origin of wheat cultivation, I am curious as to how we can totally dismiss the notion that there were some kind of large permanent settlements involved or that some may have accreted around the complex. If not co-located then nearby. We don't need to postulate anything the size or population density of the Cucuteni–Trypillia or similar fully agricultural culture.
