If anyone had suggested just twenty years ago that post-Ice Age hunter-gatherers were capable of erecting monumental architecture they would have been told in no uncertain terms that this was highly unlikely.
There is so much literature out there now on Gobekli Tepe, it can become quite frustrating to wade your way through it all. I have tried to pull together the most credible of the papers as published by the Archaeological team and indeed by Klaus Schmidt himself (RIP). A thank you also to Sl Coburn for providing two of the articles and Richard Gabriel for his enhanced pillar representation…..
Here are all the links – I will add to the list as and when the information becomes available….
