Archaeological findings uncovered in Trabzon's Göbekli Tepe, Koskarlı Cave ...

Dear friends, hello to everyone ...

I wanted to start my articles on this page with this news I just learned.

The news is pretty new.

And very pleasing.

Today is 24.04.2021 and the news is heard in the national press in March 2021.
Despite its importance, it does not seem to resonate well.

Dr. Archaeological surveys initiated by Hülya Çalışkan Akgül and her team in 2018 One of the regions concentrated on was Çayırbağı District of Trabzon Düzköy district. In this area, the findings unearthed in the Koskarlı Cave were found by Dr. Obsidian and flint fragments found in his investigation by Tristan Carter turned out to be between 11,000 and 13,000 years old. 7 of these pieces taken by academics were from McMaster University in Canada. Sent to Tristan Carter. It was determined that five of the pieces came from Cappadocia and the other two from the Trans-Caucasus (Armenia-Georgia) region.

In other words, the date given for the establishment of Trabzon was 756 B.C. This was generally based on ancient sources based on European travelers who visited the region at the end of the 19th century. In fact, in Xenephon's book The Return of the Tens of Thousands, there was information that local tribes (Kolhs, Mosiacians, Tibarens, etc.) were found in the region in the 5th century BC. However, an archaeological find could not be mentioned. Findings obtained in the surface studies mentioned here reveal the connection of the region with Cappadocia and the Caucasus since prehistoric times. . The name of our website is Köşe Bucak Anadolu. Our Anatolia is a unique geography.

Were we aware of what we were dealing with when a German archaeologist named Klaus Schmidt started excavations in Sanliurfa in 1995, which would reverse the history and perception of the world and humanity?

Of course I'm talking about Göbekli Tepe.

Our country is a unique country and history literally gushes from every corner.

How aware are we of what kind of treasure we are sitting on?

The purpose of opening the page is mostly in front of our eyes, but for some reason,
Expressing unattractive issues as much as we can, whenever our language turns.
Here, the content of the studies mentioned in the news will be published in academic journals soon. Perhaps the article I was preparing is currently published.

In times when people were considered hunter-gatherers,
 The answers to the questions of why and by whom these stones were brought from Cappadocia and the Caucasus thousands of years ago to the region, which is said to have been founded by the colonies of Miletus in the years of 700 BC, will gradually emerge.

In short, the veils of secrets of Anatolia are slowly being opened up, dear friends.

Our universities and scientists are working on this subject. The people of the region are on the subject.
This news took place a lot in the national press.

I look forward to the day when the findings will also be featured in the foreign press ...

I also add a few links about the news below.

Stay with love...

Explaining that the survey will be completed in 2023, Akgül said: "By the end of 2023, we will have visited all districts and all regions of Trabzon. This cave excited us very much because it has a group of finds that will make a great contribution not only to Trabzon but also to Anatolian archeology. Because until now, it was not possible to talk about the data that will be dated so early in these regions. Therefore, a stereotypical idea has started to change gradually, about the distant past of Trabzon. We think that our first cave will not be the only one. "

Stating that the area in question is rich in caves and rocks, Akgül said, "We found the first finds about stone tools made by man in this cave. We have documented the oldest inhabitants of the Trabzon region in this cave." said. Akgül stated that the raw material of the stone finds in the cave was obsidian and flintstone, and that it was determined that their origins were in Cappadocia and the Caucasus.
