Gobekli Tepe: The World’s First Temple
A new theory of civilization
11,000 years old
6,000 years older than Stonehenge
6,000 years before the invention of writing
"There's more time between Gobekli Tepe and the Sumerian clay tablets [etched in 3300 B.C.] than from Sumer to today," says Gary Rollefson, an archaeologist at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.
This is so cool!
