Göbekli Tepe

Göbekli Tepe
 
Göbekli Tepe, in southeastern Turkey, is a site now being excavated that bridges the Paleolithic and the Neolithic. Dating back to 11,500 BCE, it is the earliest known candidate for the origins of both agriculture and institutional religion. It contains as many as 20 stone circles composed of sculpted megaliths of 10 to 50 tons each.
