The latest excavations at Göbeklitepe in Turkey shows that the residents of the site had a belief system over 12,000 years ago.

Göbeklitepe includes many temples and archaeological works from the Neolithic era. Kürkçüo?lu evaluated the excavation, which is being carried out by Prof. Dr. Klaus Schmidt from the Berlin Germany Archaeology Institute.
