An artist perspective of the Kobekli Tepe ruins

Predating the Stonehenge by 6,000 years, Turkey’s stunning Kobekli Tepe upends the conventional view of the rise of civilization. The structures on this site were built around 12,000 years ago (10,000 BC) and intentionally buried with sand about 8,000 years ago. No one knows who these people were, what the massive buildings were for, or why they were buried. Just for reference, these massive structures were built during the last ice age and are more than 7,000 years older than any other structure we have yet discovered on our planet.

As I watched this I was in awe of what is shown and discussed, 13 years of work and only an estimated 5% had been uncovered!!!
This would truly be amazing beyond words to see.
