The ancient Egyptian complex of Giza is by far one of the most interesting archaeological hauls that humanity has ever had the opportunity to uncover and that’s a fact. It deserves all of the praise that it received since it was discovered, don’t get us wrong, but we do believe the fact that other discoveries also deserve some of that fame and recognition.
You can take as an example the Gobekli Tepe archaeological site from Turkey. Haven’t heard of it? That’s the sad part about it, it will most likely never be as popular as it deserves to be.
The Gobekli Tepe temple is actually way older and bigger than any structure from the Giza complex to the point where it’s not even worth comparing. For example, while the Great Pyramid of Giza is estimated to be about 4,500 years of age by now, the Gobekli Tepe temple is supposedly older at over 13,000 years.
This is the oldest archaeological find that historians have accepted. Despite the fact that we’ve uncovered it a while back, only around 5% of it has been studied and recorded as of yet.
Because of the sheer size of the site, this is possible. However, we know for certain that it wasn’t built by hand. Stone pillars weighing over 50 tons each were used to build it.
This is often used to prove that ancient civilizations had some access to advanced technology. You think so?
