Ancient Settlement With Sewer Dating Back 11,800 Years Discovered in Turkey | Ancient Architects

There have been a lot of new discoveries coming out of Turkey in recent months and the latest to be announced to the world is an 11,800 year old settlement in the southeast of the country.

Now part of the province of Mardin, the area in question has been home to many powerful civilisations, including the Sumerians,, Akkadians, Babylonians, Hittites, Romans, Ottomans and so on.

The team of archaeologists are excavating in the Dargeci district, with the aim of documenting and rescuing cultural sites in the area, but they didn’t expect to come across an 11,800 year old ancient settlement, complete with sewer system and more than twenty architectural structures.

Just two weeks ago, at this same location, experts first found an ancient temple, also said to be more than 11,000 years old, meaning all of these new finds are from a similar time period as the enigmatic site of Gobekli Tepe, which experts call the oldest temple in the world, located in southeastern Sanliurfa province of Turkey.

The interesting thing about the date of 11,800 years ago, or 9,800 BC – the date of this new settlement – is that it is the very end of the famous Younger Dryas Climate Shift, when temperatures dramatically began to rise, a time when many people believe that civilisation restarted.
