The enormous carved-stone structures that comprise Gobekli Tepe in Turkey are so old that they boggle the mind. It is believed that the structure dates to 11,000 BCE…more than 6,000 years older than Stonehenge in England. It marks the oldest temple complex every built by man. The site is a new find for the archeological world. It was discovered about ten years ago, in 2008, by Klaus Schmidt.
In that short decade, scientists studying at Gobekli Tepe have learned a tremendous amount of new information about ancient people, how societies evolved, and how ancient stone workers worked without metal tools. The discovery of Gobekli Tepe tells us that there are still many mysterious ancient places and artifacts still waiting to be uncovered.
