Mystery History

New Discoveries at 11,000-Year-Old Sefer Tepe

Sefer Tepe

Sefer Tepe is an ancient site located some fifty kilometers from the more famous site of Gobekli Tepe, and some 18 kilometers from Karahan Tepe. The site was only discovered in 2003. The archaeological site sits on a small brad and shallow limestone mound. The structures comprising the site were erected some 11,000 years ago on top of the bedrock. Archeological surveys have revealed Sefer Tepe covers approximately one thousand square meters. It remains a profound mystery how ancient people, especially 12,500 to 10,000 years ago, managed to erect these megalithic sites. Their complexity, size, and orientation challenge everything we thought we knew about ancient cultures.

The video below offers new insight into the discoveries that have been made at the site. Will Gobekli Tepe, Karahan Tepe and Sefer Tepe rewrite human history? It remains to be seen.
