This was a brilliant overview of all the new finds in Gobekli Tepe, a site dated around 10,000years ago. Well done!
This is the second lecture I attended on the Gobekli Tepe site. Dr. Durand's lecture is by far the most comprehensive and enjoyable. It is well researched and gives expanded information pertinent to what the site may have meant to the surrounding settlements. Certainly there are still mysteries to be unraveled, but this lecture seemed up-to-date with recent discoveries. I also enjoy Dr Durand's enthusiasm. It is infectious. I really want to visit this site some day.
The discovery of Gobelki Tepe is relatively recent and the talk was very informative. Dr. Durand's enthusiasm is inspiring.
Guillaume did a jam packed seminar with lots of information. Made better by the fact he has been there and is an archaeologist.
I have been interested in this site since I became aware of it's existence several years ago. The presence of a culture able to produce ,and invested in, huge congregational centers at a time which is still mostly considered to be pre-city or stable inhabitation blows my mind.
