Twice the age of Stonehenge or the Pyramids, Göbekli Tepe was built by a group of hunter-gatherers around 8,000 B.C. At the top of a hill, they constructed a monumental site. On large “T” shaped stones, they carved depictions of snakes and other dangerous wildlife. Currently, it is the oldest exclusively ritual center yet found.
