Gobekli Tepe is at least 12K years old, though.

Is it just me, or are they finding a lot ore sacrificial stuff lately? Heard of another location, Mayan, maybe?, with a lot of bones found, some seriously busy sacrificial activity, and now this? Creepy find.

There is much we do not know about the past. Far more that we know, is my guess.

and several pits filled with sacrificial human skulls.


I hate when they do this. They have no idea why the skulls are all together ... so it must be some perverted ritual.

If you unearth a crematorium in a thousand years ... will they claim it was sacrifices to the Sun God?

It simply could be a different burial practice but hey, that does not make the public go wow and without the wow factor, they don't receive any huge stashes of grant money.

Typical BS.

Just what I have said for ages now. They look at small clues, and make huge assumptions at times, and we are supposed to treat those as proven fact. I joked years ago about how archaeologists might treat all of those weird golden arches, all over the place.

Consider out burial practice in the West.

We drain the body of blood, fill it with formaldehyde, put it in an ornate box ... and bury it.

So, what if their burial practice was to remove the head as the most important (to them) part of the body and (with a lovely ceremony ) carefully place the head with the other heads of the ancestors.

The Conquistadors destroyed the history and since they were raping and pillaging an entire culture, they sent back reports that made the local cultures seem shockingly terrible.

Remember that half of the wealth went to the Holy Roman Catholic Church who did things like burn people at the stake.

I do not trust our current version of history.

They didn't have anything better to do back then. No hard labor or anything. The wheel was invented as an tribute to the sky gods.
