  • Astonishing Discoveries in Ancient Turkey Shows Evidence of the Watchers

    One of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th Century is located in the southeastern Anatolia region of Turkey. Originally in what later became part of Armenia, the constructions of Göbekli Tepe date back to the 10th millennium BCE (the end of the last ice age). The general public has heard little of this find, it is the believed that Göbekli Tepe is the earliest known example of temple architecture, dating back to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic period of the Near East. the mysterious stone temple complex of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is one of the greatest challenges to 21st century archaeology. As much as 7,000 years older than the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge, its strange buildings and rings of T-shaped monoliths--built with stones weighing from 10 to 15 tons--show a level...

    Is it possible that ancient cultures were interconnected thousands of years ago? According to thousands of underground tunnels that stretch from North Scotland towards the Mediterranean the answer is a big yes. While the reason behind these sophisticated tunnels remains a mystery, many experts believe that this huge 12,000 year old network was built as a protection against predators and other dangers 12,000 years ago.

  • Gobekli Tepe Ancient Ruins That Predate Known Civilization [FULL VIDEO]

    In southeast Turkey stands the oldest temple in the world. At nearly 12,000 years old, Gobekli Tepe is an enigma to archaeology. Consisting of a series of stone circles, made up of T-shaped pillars bearing exquisite carvings of animals, birds, insects and abstract human figures, this ritual complex was constructed at the end of the last Ice Age by faceless individuals, who rose far beyond the conventional understanding of the hunter-gatherers who occupied the Eurasian continent at this time. Why were these amazing stone circles buried overnight, sometime around 10,000 year ago? It is an enigma that seems to start in Africa some 17,000 years ago, and ends with not only the creation of civilization down in the fertile crescent of Mesopotamia, but also in the sudden emergence of the ancient...

An astonishing site of clearly great antiquity. A site like many others which dot our earth, which displays a far more sophisticated understanding construction and living practices, to that of which would be publicly accepted by much of modern academia… Instead, it is often more favoured to merely ignore such data as “abnormalities,” or it seems, if possible, to lock such controversies away from inquisitive minds, deep within archives or under water… And our next site is no exception. Although Gobekli Tepe has become an synonymous candidate for evidence of a once highly advanced, ancient civilisation which once flourished here on our planet. It is not the only site to be found within the area, or even the most astonishing... Known as Norsun Tepe, this is the real gem of archaeological Turkey, and yet just like Waffle rock, a site we have previously covered on our channel, located within the US… it lay at the bottom of a man-made dam, submerged deliberately, and conveniently very shortly after some highly controversial discoveries were beginning to be made at the site. An enormous mounded fort, designed and shaped with the purpose of providing a sophisticated living quarters, when the site was excavated, it was found that no less than 40 inhabitations were present within the strata… Excavations were conducted between 1968 and 1974 by the German Archaeological Institute. Archaeologists led by Harald Hauptmann, the Heidelberg professor of Prehistory and Early History, found considerable evidence to suggest that many of the later inhabitants of this sophisticated fort, were themselves highly advanced, seemingly preserving many mysterious items left by many, as yet unknown people, why a government would make the move to flood such a location remains a subject of debate, and one which has led some to accuse the Mexican government of being complicit in the cover up of an highly advanced, ancient civilisation which once lived here on earth. The field work was finished by 1974 shortly thereafter the construction of the Keban Dam works began, rising the water level and submerging the site away from prying eyes. Who built Norsun Tepe? Why did they build it? Were they at war with someone? It seems this fort has remained impenetrable since the day it was built, even successfully keeping out the elements for untold millennia, preserving untold treasures from a by gone era, treasures which seemingly shone too bright a light for some to bare… What kind of controversial archaeology is Norsun Tepe protecting? What are these governments bodies attempting to hide? These are questions which must be answered.

From the most ancient incredible Gobekli Tepe, to mysterious archaeological discoveries; These are 10 Fascinating Historical Sites in Turkey Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 10. Gobekli Tepe 9. Hattusa 8. The City of Troy 7. Ephesus 6. Mount Nemrut 5. Hierapolis 4. Hagia Sophia As the Roman Empire split up, it was divided into two large pieces in 285 AD, as it was too vast to completely govern all provinces from the seat of Rome. This turned out to be quite a good decision, especially for the Eastern Empire, who were then dubbed as the Byzantines. While the western part of the Roman empire quickly crumbled into new states, the Byzantines prospered from trade and were able to construct the magnificent capital of Constantinople, which was later named Istanbul. The Hagia Sophia was constructed in 537 AD by possibly their most impactful leader, Justinian I, but was completely by his successor,.. This basilica was the seat of Byzantine Orthodox Christianity and displayed many beautiful mosaics. The powerful city of Constantinople fell to the attacking Ottomans who laid siege to the heavily fortified, double walled city in 1453 and turned it into their own capital. This attack was led by Mehmed the Conqueror and from now on, Turkey has been primarily a Muslim country Not being followers of Christianity, they decided to keep the magnificent building but remove the christian icons and turn it into a mosque which is primarily decorated with calligraphy in modern times. 3. Cappadocia This region is known for its more arid climate and geological formations known as “fairy chimneys”. It didn’t take long for man to realize how these geological formations could serve as useful tools. Built out of soft volcanic rock, this is a prominent landmark in the Cappadocia region in Central Turkey and is know as Uchisar Castle. The city of Uchisar is know for it’s luxury hotels and this castle. It might not be the most striking castle in existence but it’s certainly a good example of how humans can transform landscapes. It’s also the tallest point in Cappadocia.. Christians began to build churches in Cappadocia as early as the first century AD. They began seeking refuge in these mountains but also underground here, which this historical area is mostly known for. If you venture underground here, you’ll see the Derinkuyu Underground City that actually could have it’s origins with the ancient Hittites but everything a normal city would have, this place would also have, Home to schools, cellars, storage rooms, churches, and even livestock, this underground city reached its peak around 700 AD to 1180 AD while it was protecting christians from marauding saracens. 2. Topkapi Palace After the Ottomans had secured Constantinople as their stronghold and established it as their new capital, Istanbul. Shortly after they began to fortify it and bu ilt lavish palaces. The Turkish flag is displayed at the gates and is a proud symbol of their heritage. The Topkapi Palace takes up a massive amount of prime real estate in Istanbul and the sultan would have been able to see Asia from the top across the Bosphorus strait. This was in use for over 400 years until their empire eventually fell. It displays a wide variety of Ottoman architecture, and now even houses historical and religious artifacts. It’s actually the largest and oldest palace still accessible to this day. It also housed a massive harem which had 400 rooms! Roughly 4,000 people lived here and almost worked like a small city. Today, it’s a unesco world heritage site and still quite a popular place among tourists to walk around at 1.The Presidential Complex To finish this video off, we’d like to mention the current Presidential Palace in Ankara, the capital, which is 30 times larger than the White House. The Turkish certain have good taste when it comes to lavish palaces, as we can tell from history! Although it was built in modern times it’s the 4th largest palace in the world and will certainly be considered a fascinating place as times pass by. Covering 1.6 square miles with approximately 1,100, the presidential palace serves a role to President Erdogan similar to how our white house serves a role to our president. The supposed cost of this palace is 615 million dollars but others estimate that it’s roughly worth 1.37 Billion when it was built in 2014. This also might not include the rumored secret underground bunker where top secret special comments are given as w ell as a supercomputer that tracks the paths of potential enemies. The palace has received quite a bit of criticism due to it’s lavish furnishings as a waste of taxpayer money. But others insist that it’ll boost Turkey’s reputation in the future.

It is highly possible that there is many more lying below the surface, just waiting to be found. Of all the underground cities discovered so far, the most awe-inspiring is perhaps the Derinkuyu city. It was discovered by accident in 1963 when a local family was renovating a house, a wall gave way to reveal a passage that led to this underground network. according to National Geographic, It is 11 levels deep, descending more than 280 feet into the bedrock, covering an area of over 4 miles squared. It included temples, tombs, shops, living quarters, and even livestock pens. Over 15,000 air shafts were built into its design, and would have been enough room to comfortably house approximately 20,000 people. The underground city has extending passages that connected to other, neighbouring and underground water well systems providing fresh water. What is especially interesting regarding this underground world, is the evidence to suggest that they were hiding from something terrifying. A sophisticated security system, consisting of a particular build design, accompanied by numerous gigantic rolling stone blocking doors, that would seal the city from the inside, Moreover, its multi layered design, meant that each level could be sealed off from the next level using this same system. Just what were these people hiding from? Whatever it was they obviously preferred to run rather than confront it… The structure was excruciatingly carved into the underground rock, and is as strong today as the day it was built, safely accommodating guests such as archaeologists and tourists. Whoever built the network, obviously had an advanced knowledge of stone working, architecture, engineering, and the local geography. Ageing the structure has proven very difficult, there are no existing quarries, waste piles, or tools to examine. Furthermore, there are no records documenting its construction, or people who may have lived there. Also, unfortunately, many cultures have used the underground towns over the centuries. According to UNESCO, “It is believed that the first signs of monastic activity in Cappadocia date back to the 4th century, at which time acting on the instructions of Basil the Great, in order to resist attacks from the Arabs, the people should band together into small local communities and begin inhabiting cells dug into the rock. Therefore, modern academia tends to conclude that they were likely built by the Phrygian people, around 800 B.C. Yet it is also a strong possibility that they are far older than this, by the Bishops instruction they are to inhabit, not build, therefore its safe to assume he was aware of their existence, rather than the person who thought them up. Some believe the underground caves were constructed by the very ancient Persian King Yima. Yima attributed as mythological by many, is said to have had a lifespan of more than 900 years, a common feature of Biblical figures as well. The Zoroastrian text “Vendidad” states that Yima built an underground city on the orders of the god Ahura Mazda, to protect his people from a catastrophic winter. Much like the account of Noah in the Bible, Yima was instructed to collect pairs of the best animals and people as well as the best seeds in order to reseed the Earth after the winter cataclysm. However, if this was ever proven to be actually true, then it places its construction in remote prehistory, before the last ice age, 110,000 years ago.

Is it possible that ancient cultures were interconnected thousands of years ago? According to thousands of underground tunnels that stretch from North Scotland towards the Mediterranean the answer is a big yes. While the reason behind these sophisticated tunnels remains a mystery, many experts believe that this huge 12,000 year old network was built as a protection against predators and other dangers 12,000 years ago. Some experts believe that these mysterious tunnels were used as modern-day highways, allowing the transition of people and connecting them to distant places across Europe. In the book Secrets Of The Underground Door To An Ancient World (German title: Tore zur Unterwelt) German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch states that evidence of huge underground tunnels has been found under dozens of Neolithic settlements all over the European continent. These tremendous tunnels are often referred to as ancient highways. According to Dr Kusch, the fact that many of these tunnels still exist today, after 12,000 years indicates that the tunnels must have been both complex and huge in size. “Across Europe there were thousands of them says Dr Kusch,” in Germany we have discovered hundreds of meters of underground tunnels. In Austria we have found hundreds more. These underground tunnels can be found everywhere across Europe and there are thousands of them.” Said the German archaeologist. While some of the tunnels are relatively small- some of them measure over a meter in width, there are other tunnels that have been found with underground chambers and storage areas. The fact that these tunnels have been found points towards incredible ancient ingenuity which is anything but what history books tells us today. Ancient mankind had the knowledge and tools to build complex structures over ten thousand years ago. Evidence of that are the Pyramids of Bosnia in Europe and their incredible underground tunnels that go on for kilometers. Dr Kusch states that ‘Across Europe there were thousands of these tunnels – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean. They are interspersed with nooks, at some places it’s larger and there is seating, or storage chambers and rooms. They do not all link up but taken together it is a massive underground network.’ Cappadocia in Turkey is another incredible example. The underground city of Derinkuyu is another piece of evidence which points towards the perfection and long-lost construction methods of our ancestors. The underground city of Derinkuyu is perhaps one of the greatest achievements in underground construction together with the huge network of tunnels. The geological features of the stone from Derinkuyu is something that is very important; it is very soft. Thus, the ancient builders of Derinkuyu had to be very careful when building these underground chambers providing enough pillar strength to support the floors above; if this was not achieved, the city would have collapsed, but so far, archaeologists have not found evidence of any “cave-ins” at Derinkuyu. Other ancient monuments such as Gobekli Tepe are more pieces of crucial evidence that point towards incredible skills and knowledge by people who inhabited our planet over ten thousand years ago. According to Dr Kusch, chapels were often built at the entrances to the underground tunnels because the Church were afraid of the heathen legacy the tunnels might have represented, and like many other things, the church wanted to make sure word about the tunnels was kept as a secret. In some of the tunnels writings have been discovered which refer to these underground tunnels as gateways to the underworld.

Uploaded by MILITARY HISTORY 2015. The Military History of Ancient Turkey and Knights Templar. Recruited from Christian populations of the Balkans and trained in the Muslim faith and culture of the Turks, the Janissaries formed a warrior caste, distinguished by military skill and unequivocal loyalty to the Sultan. Essentially Christian warrior-monks, the Knights’ mission was to rid the Holy Land of Muslims. Usually of noble birth, the knights adhered to a strict moral code of poverty, chastity and obedience. Janissary starts at 00:10 The Janissaries were elite infantry units that formed the Ottoman Sultan's household troops and bodyguards. 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. .

In southeast Turkey stands the oldest temple in the world. At nearly 12,000 years old, Gobekli Tepe is an enigma to archaeology. Consisting of a series of stone circles, made up of T-shaped pillars bearing exquisite carvings of animals, birds, insects and abstract human figures, this ritual complex was constructed at the end of the last Ice Age by faceless individuals, who rose far beyond the conventional understanding of the hunter-gatherers who occupied the Eurasian continent at this time. Why were these amazing stone circles buried overnight, sometime around 10,000 year ago? It is an enigma that seems to start in Africa some 17,000 years ago, and ends with not only the creation of civilization down in the fertile crescent of Mesopotamia, but also in the sudden emergence of the ancient Egyptian civilization, where the story continues with the discovery in 2008 of a cave underworld beneath the plateau at Giza. Powerful evidence suggests that this underground complex existed ever before even the Pyramid Age, and might well reflect an African origin to the roots of ancient Egyptian religion. It might also hold the key to answering claims that in the vicinity of the Sphinx is a lost Hall of Records.

Ancient Nicea - Iznik, Turkey ►Subscribe and click the bell to enable notifications for my new videos: http://bit.ly/DBH-SUB ►Read the blog: http://davidsbeenhere.com/category/blog/ In this episode of the David's Been Here webshow, David Hoffmann takes us around to discover what to do in Iznik, Turkey. The city is home to the ancient city of Nicea, which was founded in the 4th century by the Macedonian King Antigonus I Monophthalmus. You've probably heard about it before in history class - this is where Emperor Constantine called the Great Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. It was a monumental meeting with over 300 bishops from across the ancient Christian world. Nowadays, Iznik is a quaint town situated in northwestern Turkey along the shore of Lake Iznik. The ruins of Nicea are open to the public and easily accessible. Cars are even able to drive through the ancient gates. Iznik is also known for its unique ceramics, specifically, its blue tiles. They are the reason why Istanbul's Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Camii) got its name. The interior is decorated with over 20,000 handmade blue tiles made from the mud harvested from Iznik Lake. If you come to Iznik, you can purchase blue tiles at different art galleries or souvenir shops throughout town. One of the things that David was told he had to do was dine at one of the restaurants along the lakeshore to sample some of the local fish and meze plates. Camlik Restaurant had a beautiful shaded terrace overlooking the lake and offered a wide range of specialties to try. David ordered up some delicious meze plates and Camlik's famous fish kebabs, which were battered, fried, and served with fresh grilled veggies. Price per plate is about $9, which is pretty cheap considering the beautiful setting! Another highlight of Iznik is the Ayasofya Musezi (Hagia Sofia Museum). It was an ancient Byzantine Church in ancient Nicea built sometime in the 6th century under the orders of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. It was modeled after the impressive Hagia Sofia in Constantinople (Istanbul). It was converted into a mosque after the invasion of the Ottoman Turks in 1337. It currently still functions as a mosque but several of the old Christian paintings and mosaics have been uncovered and are on display. ☆ CONTACT ☆ ↠ Business: david@godandbeauty.com ↠ Questions: https://www.twitter.com/davidsbeenhere ☆ Equipment Used ☆ ↠ Main Camera - http://amzn.to/2nZLPvS ↠ Main Lens - http://amzn.to/2nxLZ1g ↠ Second Lens - http://amzn.to/2o06hN1 ↠ Tripods: http://amzn.to/2oqmBKb ↠ SD Cards: http://amzn.to/2oqsYgf ↠ LaCie Rugged Hard Drive: https://alexa.design/2oZDTf0 ↠ Rent Cameras and Lenses: http://bit.ly/BL-DBH ☆ T-shirts available now ☆ ↠ http://bit.ly/DBH-Shop Production by Carlos de Varona from Chromahouse. http://carlosdevarona.com http://www.chromahouse.com SOCIAL MEDIA: Snapchat: @davidsbeenhere Instagram: https://instagram.com/davidsbeenhere Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/davidsbeenhere1 Blog: http://davidsbeenhere.com/category/blog/

Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MysteryHistoryBook/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Mysterytweetery Steemit: https://steemit.com/@mysteryhistory We recently made a community post, pertaining to the remarkable, yet little known, or indeed studied discovery, made within the extremely ancient city of Patara, in modern day Turkey. And due to popular demand, we are going to cover this peculiar artefact in greater depth. As mentioned, although there are many archaeological sites within Turkey, and particularly within this region, this peculiar feature is rarely discussed within modern academic or archaeological circles… And once you realise what this enormous relic might have once been, you may realise why… Known as the ancient aqueduct of Patara, it was once a series of tubular systems, hewn from solid sandstone, presumably running from settlement to settlement. Some parts clearly displaying a significant level of erosion, indicating a truly colossal antiquity, that has unfortunately made reconstruction of some of the pipes quite difficult. Claimed to be that of the romans, used for the transportation of water, however, what is interesting regarding Patara, and indeed many other ancient sites, claimed by the Romans as their own constructions… is that it too, holds some unexplainable features, things which separates it from the other more standard roman architecture. It seems for many ancient, highly eroded sites found around our world, the culprit for construction is often put upon the most convenient candidate. Completely absent of any explanation regarding construction. In 1993 a monumental pillar was discovered at Patara, on which is a Greek dedication to Claudius, and an official announcement of the building of roads by the governor, Quintus Veranius Nepos, in giving place names and distances, essentially an entire public itinerary, yet alas they forgot to mention the enormous undertaking that was the aqueduct. One has to wonder, where did the romans get all of their ingenious ideas? Were they all originals? Or perhaps, like we have posited in the past, akin to the ancient Egyptians… Had some helpful head starts from a once far more capable, far more knowledgeable people, who left structures still standing to this day? The little research that we have unearthed regarding the original site, does indeed indicate that Patara’s ancient piping system, is in fact not roman, but the origin of the Romans inspiration when it came to the creation of their own piping systems. Even the original settlement and building of Patara was attributed too and named after Patara, son of Apollo, a great Deity, thus a mythical figure. It Pertains to a first, highly eroded, perplexing stretch of 5.4 km’s, along the steep western slope of Kisla Mountain, down to the community of Akbel, details from roman aqueducts.com regarding the research is as follows, quote, “it originally consisted of a masonry channel, presumably of Hellenistic age, of which, only scant relics remain. This stretch was later replaced, “probably” by the Romans, by a single line of 55-58 cm-long ceramic pipes. The pipeline was laid directly on the ground alongside the abandoned channel and locally positioned on low walls or in rock cuts.” End quote. Are we looking at a far more ancient far more advanced relic, than one is first led to believe? A relic later replicated to a certain degree by the romans for their own ends? We find the evidence to suggest such, highly compelling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patara,_Lycia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stadiasmus_Patarensis http://www.romanaqueducts.info/aquasite/patara/index.html

More info about travel to Ephesus: http://www.nofrillsephesustours.com Ephesus (/ˈɛfəsəs/; Greek: Ἔφεσος Ephesos; Turkish: Efes; ultimately from Hittite Apasa) was an ancient Greek city on the coast of Ionia, three kilometres southwest of present-day Selçuk in İzmir Province, Turkey. It was built in the 10th century BC on the site of the former Arzawan capital by Attic and Ionian Greek colonists. During the Classical Greek era it was one of the twelve cities of the Ionian League. The city flourished after it came under the control of the Roman Republic in 129 BC. According to estimates, Ephesus had a population of 33,600 to 56,000 people in the Roman period, making it the third largest city of Roman Asia Minor after Sardis and Alexandria Troas. The city was famed for the Temple of Artemis (completed around 550 BC), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In 268 AD, the Temple was destroyed or damaged in a raid by the Goths. It may have been rebuilt or repaired but this is uncertain, as its later history is not clear. Emperor Constantine the Great rebuilt much of the city and erected new public baths. Following the Edict of Thessalonica from Emperor Theodosius I, what remained of the temple was destroyed in 401 AD by a mob led by St. John Chrysostom. The town was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 614 AD. The city's importance as a commercial center declined as the harbor was slowly silted up by the Küçükmenderes River. Ephesus was one of the seven churches of Asia that are cited in the Book of Revelation. The Gospel of John may have been written here. The city was the site of several 5th century Christian Councils (see Council of Ephesus). It is also the site of a large gladiators' graveyard. The ruins of Ephesus are a favourite international and local tourist attraction, partly owing to their easy access from Adnan Menderes Airport.
