Karahan Tepe EXCLUSIVE: New Discoveries & Drone Footage from December 2021

Early in December 2021, I was sent around 12 to 15 minutes of raw video footage by friend of the channel ‘Dakota of Earth’. The footage is brand new, taken on location, both on the ground and with a drone at the incredible Pre-Pottery Neolithic site of Karahan Tepe, one of the 12 Tas Tepeler sites of Ancient Turkey.

He has given this footage to me exclusively as we look around the newly excavated parts of the site and there are things I have never seen before, including an anthropomorphic pillar with two arms but with 8 fingers on each hand.

There are leopard reliefs and carvings, but with amazing texture and you’ll see things in this video you can’t see anywhere else.

Watch the first video now to learn all about the amazing 11,000-year-old of Karahan Tepe and see it like never before.




The second video is incredible and rare drone footage, recorded in December 2021. To date, only a small percentage of Karahan Tepe has been excavated to date and there is so much more to come. It has many similarities but also many clear differences to its sister site of Gobekli Tepe and you won't see new footage like this anywhere else on the internet.

In this video there is no audio commentary from me, just captions at intervals to talk you through what exactly you are looking at, a site that, in my opinion, could well prove to be one of the most important archaeological complexes ever discovered.
