The ancient Egyptian complex of Giza is by far one of the most interesting archaeological hauls that humanity has ever had the opportunity to uncover and that’s a fact. It deserves all of the praise that it received since it was discovered, don’t get us wrong, but we do believe the fact that other discoveries also deserve some of that fame and recognition.
Take for example the Gobekli Tepe archaeological site from Turkey. Haven’t heard of it? That’s the sad part about it, it will most likely never be as popular as it deserves to be.
The Gobekli Tepe temple is actually way older and bigger than any structure from the Giza complex to the point where it’s not even worth comparing. The Great Pyramid of Giza for example is believed to be around 4,500 years old by now but the Gobekli Tepe temple is way older than that, supposedly dating back to over 13,000 years ago.
This is so far the oldest archaeological finding that historians have accepted. Despite the fact that we’ve uncovered it a while back, only around 5% of it has been studied and recorded as of yet.
This is because of how huge the site really is. What we do know though is that it was definitely not built by hand as it was built using stone pillars that weighed over 50 tons each.
This is commonly used as proof that ancient civilizations had access to advanced technology of some sort. What do you think though?
