Overview

There are grounds to claim that the most significant archaeological discovery of the 21st century is the Göbekli Tepe as it dates back to 12 thousand years ago which makes it approximately 8 thousand years older than the Egyptian pyramids and 7 thousand years older than Stonehenge in England. Göbekli Tepe is even older than the human transition to settled life, so, therefore, proving the existence of religious beliefs before the establishment of the first cities.

Findings of researchers at Göbekli Tepe shows that a religious class existed at such early ages and division of society into social classes took place well before the assumed dates, and maybe the first agricultural activity to have been conducted in the region.

The site is also exceptional with the first patriarchal thought and the first reliefs and statues of the Neolithic Age. With all this new information, it has been added to the collective knowledge of humanity and into the history books. Because of the merits of its contribution to human history, Göbekli Tepe was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2018.

It's amazing what people had built 12 000 years ago, it simply makes you speechless. It's probably one of the most important archaeological discoveries, which can completely change the history of mankind. Amazing to see, we had a great tour.
