13 Oct 18:00 - 23 Oct 21:00 - Sanlıurfa
Hosted by Andrew Collins, author of Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods, with Megalithomaniac Hugh Newman, author of Earth Grids and Stone Circles, and special guest from the USA, Jj Ainsworth, a leading authority on ancient symbolism.
The breath-taking plains and steppes of eastern Turkey, the traditional Garden of Eden or terrestrial Paradise, was the setting for the Neolithic revolution and the rise of civilization. We will visit some of the world’s most exciting archaeological sites including Göbekli Tepe, the oldest stone temple complex, and Karahan Tepe, an unexcavated site from the same era. The new Urfa Archaeological museum has hundreds of artefacts from Gobekli Tepe, Nevali Çori and other pre-pottery neolithic sites. We also explore the ancient city of Harran, and Çatal Höyük, the world’s first city. We visit the city of Konya, home of the Whirling Dervishes; Alaca Hoyuk and Hattusa that have incredible megalithic polygonal masonry similar to Peru, Sanliurfa, the ancient Christian city of Edessa, birthplace of Abraham; and the traditional area of the Garden of Eden, home of the Watchers and Nephilim of the book of Enoch, and the Annunaki of Sumerian myth and legend. We will also visit two of the huge underground cities - Derinkiyu and Kaymakli, as well as the Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia. Andrew, Hugh and Jj will be presenting evening lectures throughout the tour, plus they will be discussing theories and new research on site.
