I updated a very old thread of mine, but I don't see it on the list, but I thought many of you would like to know.

"Very sad to read this news.

The head of excavation and preservation at Gobekli Tepe has passed away.

He died of a heart attack while swimming in Germany at 61 years old... way too young.

While myself and some other armchair followers of Gobekli Tepes progress never really liked the whole "world's first temple" thing, he was a great archaeologist, and seemed to dedicate his life to understanding this truly mysterious site.

Rest In Peace"

Well, The temple will now fade back into obscurity, historians and archaeologists can breathe a sigh of relief that he cant question their timeline anymore

No the timeline has already by adjusted and it's being excavated by the DAI a MOST determined group, his number 2 will take over or another highly place archaeologist will be brought in, however I'm not sure who that might be.

That stone working for structures got moved way back to GT. That Social organization (the ability to gather enough people to built something that big and complex) was also moved way back also, and the creation of elaborate religious processes has a large ? mark by it now, previously it had been held that the AE and Sumerians started up large scale organized religion but GT hints that it may have been much earlier (however it is hard to tell as GT has no writing).

Isn't that the character name of Kevin Bacon in the newer xmen movie?

Yes it is...en.wikipedia.org...:_First_Class

Kevin Bacon played Klaus Schmidt in xmen, first class. I thought that name sounded familiar.

Yep he did something that is rare, he changed what we understand about the history and made a radical change to our understanding of the past.

Much is subjective data who is really the most objective is another story. I understand your point however...

I wonder if he finally figured out too much about the place.

Last I read it was still upwards of 90% not excavated.

The last I read it was only at 5% excavated there another 20 years of work on a site of that importance. As noted earlier the DAI is noted for extremely thorough - if slow work. Of course such percentages are guesses it might get more complex as they dig further.
