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?
