Bronze Age palace discovered in Turkey


A massive 4,500-year-old palace has been found during excavations at the Kultepe mound in central Turkey.

“There is no such a huge building like this in Anatolia and Middle East. We are only at the certain part of the building right now. We will see an enormous structure once we discover it all.

One thought on “Bronze Age palace discovered in Turkey

  1. the exact measurements of the palace would be nice to know so that people may confirm whether or not it is the largest discovered in the Middle East for themselves. other than that, it is great that people are still uncovering such great things.
