A Neolithic-era temple with three mostly-intact steles unearthed at archaeologic excavations in southeastern Turkey’s Mardin province.
Apparently belonging to a temple of columns and marble pedestals were found at Drilling excavations in the Amasra district of Bartın. It is estimated that the temple may belong to the temple of Queen Amastris, who gave the district its name.
Archaeolog Dr. Lee Clare says; As mentioned previously, our scientific research is currently in what I would refer to as a “transitional phase”. Freed of its old paradigm, I believe that we will see Göbeklitepe in a completely different light.
