Garbanzos (Chickpeas) are one of humanities first domesticated crops. Domesticated chickpeas have been found at several early archaeological sites, including the Pre-Pottery Neolithic sites of Tell el-Kerkh (ca. 8,000 BC) and Dja'de (11,000-10,300 calendar years ago cal BP, or about 9,000 BC) in Syria, Cayonu (7250-6750 BC), Hacilar (ca 6700 BC), and Akarcay (7280-8700 BP) in Turkey; and Jericho (8350 BC to 7370 BC) in the West Bank.
