non-agricultural neolithic village?

Can anyone help here? A friend me told the other day that he recently saw a
newspaper article describing an archaeological find of a Neolithic Near East
village where agriculture was _not_ practiced. I can't find the article. I am
under the impression that it was a recent find. I has a quick scan of recent
journals but didn't see anything.

Has something like this been found recently?
Or has there been some development on an older find?
My understanding is that there is no (clear-cut) example of a sedentary village
population at this time and place who didn't practice agriculture.

Thanks in advance,
