Rescue Excavations; Norşuntepe Höyük
1969 - 1973
Our planet Earth is really rich place to live. It located million on her mysterious nooks and crannies that we have not yet discovered, and millions of those we discovered we could not examine them properly. In our new series we can zoom into the most mysterious places on earth, where the most things work quite differently, as they should. Some of them spread terror, hiding their secrets or unexplained breath taking its uniqueness
Covered with Norsun-Tepe and Göbekli-Tepe
Structure in the form of walls of some structures inside a hill with a diameter of 500 m. It was in the area of the Keban dam, about 25 km from Elazig.
The place was slightly excavated by the Germans between 1968 and 1974 - archaeologists of the German Archaeological Institute conducted excavations led by Harald Hauptmann, a professor of prehistoric and early Heidelberg history.
Officially: the Neolithic (4,000-3,000 BC). In the 74th Turks excavations were banned. In connection with the construction of Keban dam and the creation of water intake.
And this is all that is known about this place. I tried to find it in google maps. Unsuccessfully. It seems that these excavations were dug back.
Maybe someone will be able to identify this hill on a Google map?
There is practically no information on excavations on the network. And only a couple of more or less high-quality photos
If these excavations are dug back - apparently there is something to hide. Similar hills in this area (while looking) found five pieces.
Where did the ground come from to cover this hill? Flood? Falling into dust storms? From space?
On this site it is said that Norsunteep is now under the water of the reservoir. Age, which gave the archaeologists this find - about 5 thousand years.
And judging by this photo, Norsuntepé is not the only one that is bombarded with a hill, where there are buildings
Probably, many know about Göbekli-Tepe. Whose age archeologists determine at least 8, or even 12 thousand years. Western historians - great love of
The fact that these columns were found in layers of abiogenic soil is a fact for me. They were fixed by the rubble stone, in which they were due to the forces of the cataclysm.
