Photos of Globeki Tepe, the world’s most important archaeological site

Göbekli Tepe is regarded as an archaeological discovery of the greatest importance since it could profoundly change the understanding of a crucial stage in the development of human society. It is located at the top of a mountain ridge in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey, northeast of the town of Şanlıurfa (formerly Urfa/Edessa).

It includes massive stones carved about 11,000 years ago by people who had not yet developed metal tools, pottery or even the wheel.

Ian Hodder of Stanford University said: ‘Göbekli Tepe changes everything’. And David Lewis-Williams, professor of archaeology at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, has said: ‘Göbekli Tepe is the most important archaeological site in the world. The key factor with this site is its been easy to date as it was mysteriously buried by its creators for reasons as yet unknown’.

These are some photos I took during a recent trip there.
