A settlement area from the pre-historic period has been found in the Dardanelles, according to the head of Troy excavations, Associate Professor Rüstem Aslan.
“We have found a prehistoric settlement dating back to 5,000 B.C. But only 5 percent of the settlement exists,” said Aslan. The archaeology team examined the coast from the entrance of the Dardanelles to Çanakkale city center, he said. “The coastal excavations had been finished and we unearthed something unexpected around Bozköy.”
The settlement was 2,000 years older than Troy,

thats actually pretty cool...ive always really enjoyed learning more and more about our history and past....and this is just another step in the right direction...but it always makes me wonder if we stop finding cities towns or camps do we then what? if we go back and say we came from apes wont there be subtle hints along the way? i believe we descend from monkeys or w.e but it would be cool if they could finally say here is the proof along with fossils!
“We know that almost all settlements older than 5,000 years ago were established on high plateaus.”

What does that even mean? If they've only excavated part of it, how can they know how big it really is?

February 16, 2002 Surat, India - A month ago in mid-January, marine scientists in India announced they had sonar images of square and rectangular shapes about 130 feet down off the northwestern coast of India in the Gulf of Khambhat (Cambay). Not only are their sonar shapes with 90-degree angles, the Indian Minister of Science and Technology ordered that the site be dredged. What was found has surprised archaeologists around the world and was the subject of a private meeting two weeks ago attended by the Indian Minister in charge of investigating the underwater site about thirty miles off the coast from Surat.
