The Mysterious Gobekli Tepe in Turkey

  • Less than ten years ago, Professor Klaus Schmidt and his team made one of the most important archaeological discoveries of our century. In south Turkey, close to the city of Urfa, Professor Schmidt found the Gobekli Tepe , a temple that was built at about 12,000 – 13,000 years ago by the primitive Neolithic men. The time period ( pre-pottery Neolithic A ) was at about 9600-7300 BCE, an era that archaeologists claim mankind lacked metal tools. The site is very well preserved, as it appears that its creators entombed their temples under tons of earth in order to create artificial hills over them.
