I was recently watching a documentary on Gobekli Tepe... which is an ancient Neolithic sanctuary discovered in 1994 by an old Kurdish shepherd in
This site is apparently dated to around 12,000 years ago... which means it predates any known history of our species... So much for the 6000 year old
While watching I noticed a bunch of stone carvings of animals... and some of them are rather strange to say the least...
Is it possible these are depictions of animals that haven't existed for thousands of years?
In many cases stone carvings are images of what the people of their time actually saw... if this is the case, the people of Gobekli Tepe saw some
Here we have what looks like a bull, and a strange looking creature... perhaps similar to a fox... Though it kinda looks like it has claws like a
crab... and some sort of long legged bird... Maybe a crane of sorts?
Some sort of pot bellied cat?
This looks similar to a bear, but with stripes?
This one is puzzling... the image on the upper right side is almost alien... Maybe... just maybe, its proof of the existence of some sort of fairy
Heres a few more, plus we might even be seeing a depiction of what the people of the area looked like in this picture...
archaeologists working on the site say they've only uncovered about 5% of the area thus far, meaning there will be a lot more to come in the future
from this discovery...
Personally I can't wait to see what else has yet to be found
