Knights Templar starts at 23:37 The Knights Templar were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and were among the most prominent actors of the Christian finance. Much of what we know of ancient history is the history of militaries: their conquests, their movements, and their technological innovations. There are many reasons for this. Kingdoms and empires, the central units of control in the ancient world, could only be maintained through military force. Due to limited agricultural ability, there were relatively few areas that could support large communities, so fighting was common. Weapons and armor, designed to be sturdy, tended to last longer than other artifacts, and thus a great deal of surviving artifacts recovered tend to fall in this category as they are more likely to survive. Weapons and armor were also mass-produced to a scale that makes them quite plentiful throughout history, and thus more likely to be found in archaeological digs. .

Ancient History of Hierapolis, Pamukkale, Turkey (A Full Documentary) Most beautiful places on Earth! In this perfect world, there are so many amazing places to visit but unfortunately we can't. I hope all you are like this video. Please subscribed for more: https://www.youtube.com/BeautifulPlacesOnEarth Deriving from springs in a cliff almost 200 m high overlooking the plain of Cürüksu in south-west Turkey, calcite-laden waters have created an unreal landscape, made up of mineral forests, petrified waterfalls and a series of terraced basins given the name of Pamukkale (Cotton Palace). Located in the province of Denizli, this extraordinary landscape was a focus of interest for visitors to the nearby Hellenistic spa town of Hierapolis, founded by the Attalid kings of Pergamom at the end of the 2nd century B.C., at the site of an ancient cult. Its hot springs were also used for scouring and drying wool. Ceded to Rome in 133 B.C., Hierapolis flourished, reaching its peak of importance in the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D., having been destroyed by an earthquake in 60 A.D. and rebuilt. Remains of the Greco-Roman period include baths, temple ruins, a monumental arch, a nymphaeum, a necropolis and a theatre. Following the acceptance of Christianity by the emperor Constantine and his establishment of Constantinople as the 'new Rome' in 330 A.D., the town was made a bishopric. As the place of St. Philip's martyrdom in 80 A.D., commemerated by his Martyrium building in the 5th century, Hierapolis with its several churches became an important religious center for the Eastern Roman Empire. The combination of striking natural formations and the development of a complex system of canals, bringing the thermal water to nearby villages and fields, is exceptional. The springs are the source of a hydraulic system extending 70 km northwest to Alasehir and westwards along the valley of the Menderes River. Pamukkale forms an important backdrop to the original Greco-Roman town of Hierapolis and the cultural landscape which dominates the area. For all details you can log onto: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/485/ Hierapolis (Greek: Ἱεράπολις 'sacred city') was an ancient Greco-Roman city in Phrygia located on hot springs in southwest Anatolia. Its ruins are adjacent to modern Pamukkale, Turkey. Hierapolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hot springs there have been used as a spa since the 2nd century BCE, and people came to soothe their ailments, with many of them retiring or dying here. The large necropolis is filled with sarcophagi, including the Sarcophagus of Marcus Aurelius Ammianos. Part of the archaeological site of Hierapolis The great baths were constructed with huge stone blocks without the use of cement, and consisted of various closed or open sections linked together. There are deep niches in the inner section of the bath, library, gymnasium and other closed or open locations. The complex, which was constructed in the 2nd century BCE, constitutes a good example of vault type architecture. The complex is now an archaeological museum. Hierapolis is located in the Menderes River valley adjacent to the modern Turkish city of Pamukkale and nearby Denizli. It is located in Turkey's inner Aegean region, which has a temperate climate for most of the year. See Pamukkale Geology for more detail Pamukkale, meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is located in Turkey's Inner Aegean region, in the River Menderes valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year. Travertine terrace formations at Pamukkale, Turkey. May 21, 2011 The ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine city of Hierapolis was built on top of the white "castle" which is in total about 2,700 metres (8,860 ft) long, 600 m (1,970 ft) wide and 160 m (525 ft) high. It can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 km away. Tourism is and has been a major industry. People have bathed in its pools for thousands of years. As recently as the mid-20th century, hotels were built over the ruins of Hieropolis, causing considerable damage. An approach road was built from the valley over the terraces, and motor bikes were allowed to go up and down the slopes. When the area was declared a World Heritage Site, the hotels were demolished and the road removed and replaced with artificial pools. Wearing shoes in the water is prohibited to protect the deposits.Pamukkale is a tourist attraction. It is recognized as a World Heritage Site together with Hierapolis. Hierapolis-Pamukkale was made a World Heritage Site in 1988

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.

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!
