From a dungeon that once held the inspiration to Bram Stoker's Dracula to discovering the famous remains of theTrojan Horse! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 7.Tomb of St. Philip St. Philip the Apostle was one of the 12 original disciples of Jesus. Archaeologists tried for years to find the site of his tomb and were unsuccessful until 2011 when they finally found it in the ruins of a church in the ancient Turkish city of Hierapolis. Recognized as a martyr of Christianity, Philip is believed to have been either crucified upside down or beheaded in around 80 AD in the southwest province of Denizli. The tomb is expected to become an important pilgrimage destination for Christians. His remains were not in the tomb, they were taken to Rome and buried in the sixth century. 6.Cappadocia Underground Cities In a central Turkish region known as Cappadocia you can find a massive, sprawling network of underground cities. The largest of these underground cities could house up to 20,000 people. The local people built these cities, which date back to early Byzantine times, to hide from incoming invaders. In 2013, one of the largest underground cities was unearthed when a group of low income homes was destroyed. No one is sure of its exact size because it has not been fully explored but estimates say that this recently uncovered city could plummet as deep as 370 feet. 5.The Germ Scientifically, the germ was not discovered in Turkey. That would take a microscope, which was not around when the germ was first properly explained by Aksemsettin, a Turkish philosopher and scientist who lived from 1389 to 1459. Not only did he teach Mehmed the Conqueror but he also stated that, “Illness spreads person to person with very little living creatures which we can’t see,” explaining the germ before it was possible to confirm the correct theory. 4.Ancient Stone Tool A stone knife was unearthed by archaeologists at an ancient site on the Gediz river, on the Anatolian peninsula of Turkey. The tool is believed to be 1.2 million years old, which is far older than humans were thought to have been in this part of the world and is also by far the oldest artifact ever discovered in this part of the world. This discovery is also important in that it helps establish the time and way in which early humans came into the area we now call Europe. 3.Trojan Horse A team of Turkish archaeologists recently uncovered a large structure made of wooden planks that they believe to be the remains of the infamous Trojan Horse. Carbon dating showed that the structure is from the 12th century B.C., which is around the time the Trojan War is thought to have taken place. The Trojan Horse was long thought to be an analogy for a natural disaster, but this finding suggests that the legend could have been much more steeped in fact than previously believed. 2.Dracula’s Dungeon Dracula is an incredibly famous novel written by Bram Stoker. The story has captivated and horrified audiences throughout the world since the book was first published in 1897 and countless movies, plays, books and TV shows have been made based off of the legendary tale. What is less known is the tale behind the tale. The character Dracula is believed to have stemmed from Vlad the Impaler, a real life person who was one bad dude. Legend has it that he impaled up to 20,000 people to ward off attacking Ottoman invaders, giving him his grisly nickname. A maze of dungeons and tunnels was discovered beneath Tokat Castle in the heart of Tokat, Turkey that were used by the Ottoman Empire to house prisoners. One of these prisoners was our friend, Vlad the Impaler, who was only a child at the time. His harsh treatment and captivity in this dungeon were believed to have ingrained a cynicism in him that led him to do the horrible things that he would famously go on to do. The site was recently opened to the public. 1.Gobekli Tepe Klaus Schmidt, a German archaeologist, made a startling discovery in southeast Turkey that could change the way we view history. He found an arrangement of massive carved stone pillars arranged in circles that were about 11,000 years old. These stones were carved and arranged by prehistoric people that had not yet developed metal tools. If you ask Schmidt, the site represents the first human built holy place. What has been unearthed is remarkable, but it is a very small part of what remains to be excavated. It certainly opens the door to a lot of questions. How were prehistoric humans able to move and arrange these pillars with the simple tools that they had to use? What was the purpose of building this site? These questions remain a mystery that may be lost forever to the passing of time.

The Archaeological site of Assos, located in the south-western part of the Biga Peninsula, is thought to have first been settled during the Bronze Age. The location of the Assos settlement is unique in its equisite, and once highly complex design, an effortless mingling with that of the natural environment, combined with the foundation of the architecture. One of the most remarkable landmarks from Assos, is the sheer rock walled acropolis at the highest point of the city. It is also the home of the world’s most curiously peculiar burial tombs, now known commonly as the “meat eaters” they are notoriously known throughout the region for their unique abilitiy, of being able to dissolve the remains of the locals in surprisingly short periods of time. “The meat eater tombs are clearly ancient, yet their true antiquity is still unknown, they were originally cut to rough designs, with their interior, and detailed decorations completed in the graveyard. Some long term investigative researchers at the site, are clearly fascinated with this phenomenon, and have been eagerly trying to figure out just whats causing the bodies to decompose so quickly, in these particular tombs. The current, favourite theory, is that of a high content of aluminium within the stone used. Some claiming that the aluminium material is whats causing the fast decomposition. Maybe the locals of Assos somehow figured out that aluminium could corrode flesh if added in specific quantities to the stone, subsequently putting this material inside the tombs to decompose the bodies within a short period of time. The meat eater tombs of Assos become more famous every day as more and more specialists become aware of their fascinating and unique characteristics. Professor Nurettin Aslan, head of the Archaeology Department, thus, head of the excavations in the ancient city told us, quote, “The fact that these tombs were exported to different countries, shows that they were very expensive and highly sought after tombs, specifically due to their decomposition abilities. We can say that the Assos tombs were particularly preferred by people who read Plinius, and the tombs are generally found to be two meters long and a metre wide. However, It is also possible to see even wider and longer tombs on site in Assos too. Their weight is usually found to be around three tons, with them created from a material known as andesite stone. The decorations are also unique to Assos only. For example, all tombs from within Rome had three wreathes along their side, while the Assos tombs only present two. Just how did this ancient culture manage to accomplish such a peculiar feat? Assos was originally a small rich town in the Çanakkale Province of Turkey, founded from 1000 to 900 BC by Aeolian colonists from Lesbo. In 530BC, the settlers would build a Doric Temple to Athena on the top of the steep crag which makes up the spine of this ancient town build, this town is where Hermias, the student of Plato, ruled the region, he brought great prosperity and transformation to Assos attracting some of the greatest philosophical minds of the world, was it one of these special characters who holds the key to this riddle? Asos is also where Aristotle was married to Pythia in 348 BC. This 'golden period' of Assos ended several years later when the Persians invaded,subsequently torturing Hermias to death. The Persians were driven out by Alexander the Great in 334 BC. Between 241 and 133 BC, the city was ruled by the Kings of Pergamon. However, in 133 BC, the Pergamons lost control of the city as it was absorbed by the Roman Empire. Just how do the meat eater tombs work?

Ancient Hittites of Anatolia (1700 - 700 BC) - territory of modern central Turkey. One of the most ancient civilizations. Hattusa was the capital of Hittite empire. In 13th cen BC Hittite king Muwatalli II moved the capital south to Tarhuntassa. Muwatalli II is best known as the Hittite ruler who fought Ramesses II to a standstill at the Battle of Kadesh around 1274 BC. Accompanying music: "Place Where Pharoahs Go / Interlude", musical composition. Ancient Egypt was contemporary of the Hittite empire and had close relations with it. Egyptians also fought several wars against the Hittites. -------------------------------------- Hittite language was a member of the Anatolian branch of the Indo-European language family. Natively, the Hittites referred to their land as Hatti, and to their language as Nesili (the language of Nesa) - the oldest attested Indo-European language. It is generally assumed that the Hittites came into Anatolia some time before 2000 BC. While their earlier location is disputed, there has been strong evidence for more than a century that the home of the Indo-Europeans in the fourth and third millennia was in the Pontic Steppe, present day Ukraine around the Sea of Azov. The Hittites and other members of the Anatolian family then came from the north, possibly along the Caspian Sea. The Hebrew Bible refers to "Hittites" in several passages, ranging from Genesis to the post-Exilic Ezra-Nehemiah. The Hittites are usually depicted as a people living among the Israelites. They served as high military officers in David's army. ---------------------- Made by Ukrainian friend of Turkey! Turkey and Ukraine - two great nations!
