What an amazing site! Imagine that: seven thousand years older than the pyramids! It takes my breath away!

As they say it is an on-going project. And it'll probably take another 15/20 years to fully excavate. So imagine all the fantastic finds we are yet to see.

What bothers me is the 'certainty' of the statement that is was a hunting people. Not an agricultural people. I'm not at all sure that is a foregone conclusion. There was a transitional period. Maybe it lasted millennia. So the people who built Göbekli Tepe could have been hunters and farmers, for all I know.

The German is no problem for me.
The most intrigueing thing the voice-over said, imo, is that the site appeared to have been covered on purpose! I wonder how they conclude that. Or when it supposedly happened. And, if so, of course why. Anybody know any other ancient building site that was later deliberately covered up?

Diluvial sediment from the Black Sea? ;-)

R/S -

I guess the magnitude of a Black Sea flood would have to be the question. The site is on the other side of the Kargapazari mountains to the Black Sea. The same mountain range that feeds the Euphrates.

Gobekli Tepe is adjacent to an ancient river bed.

That may all be true. It doesn't change the fact that the archeologists apparently claim to 'know' it was deliberately covered. That's a level up on theories and premises, in my book.
Would be interesting to know what makes them so certain.
