Turkish Stonehenge: Gobekli Tepe reveals the secrets of our ancestors and forces scientists to rethink the beginnings of astronomy and civilization. It tells the story of how celestial knowledge was kept alive and fills in the gap between cave paintings and the Sumerian culture. Gobekli Tepe is the Turkish Stonehenge. Gobekli Tepe, in southeast Turkey, is currently being excavated by Prof. Dr. Klaus Schmidt, in association with the German Archaeological Institute, officials from the Turkish Government, and the Sanliurfa Museum. This 12,000 year old site includes numerous circular structures made from limestone pillars with bas-relief carvings. While researching the dig site, Joe Plegge discovered that at least one of the stone circles was designed specifically to track equinoxes and solstices. He reveals the origins of the people who built the stone circles and where they learned to carve stone. He describes how solar observations were monitored at Gobekli Tepe and at Stonehenge 7,000 years later. Finally, he offers the proof that the descendants of the builders of Gobekli Tepe migrated throughout Europe and settled in England thousands of years before Stonehenge was built. There are 51 illustrations including color photos, maps, and drawings.
