Another piece from my ongoing Younger Dryas extinction project. Gobekli Tepe was discovered 20 years ago in Turkey on a hill in a farmers field (hence the translation in Turkish to "Pot bellied hill").
The age of the site was originally disputed as some archaeologists believed the site to be only as old as 5000 years however recent evidence suggested that it is somewhere closer to 12800 - 14000 years old. This age of this site has significance with the cataclysmic events which happened 13000 years ago which ended the last Ice Age. Perhaps it is what's left of a civilisation which was mostly wiped out?
