Lost Neolithic "city" in Turkey

 

 Thanks to Phil for alerting me to this one.......

Some big stones here -- this "lost city" is featured on the Nat Geog TV channel on Tuesday.  Supposedly the site is older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids -- and there are some rather splendid stones incorporated into the structures.

DESCRIPTION

Join the experts to unearth the treasures of an ancient wonder in the UK premiere of Lost Civilisation on Wednesday 14 March at 9pm.

It is the find that could rewrite the whole of human history.

In 1995, under the dusty soil of a Turkish hill, a complex was unearthed that is older than the Egyptian pyramids and pre-dates Stonehenge.

However, with the true significance of the site only now becoming apparent, the find is making experts re-evaluate their theories on mankind's entire development.

Could this incredible monument really have been the catalyst that started humanity's journey from the Stone Age to the Space Race?

Find out with experts, including Dave Chapman, as they investigate how and why this mysterious place was built.

Quite happy about that. Should I be worried?

Is 'expert Dave Chapman' the same guy who used to drive a bulldozer for Wimpey Homes? Good bloke.

Hello Tony,
I don't know about Dave driving for Wimpey but I know he can make a mean stone axe and an excellent Celtic roundhouse.

Sorry Phil,

just my warped sense of humour. Comes of seeing too many "Daves" driving soil-moving machines on Time Team!
