Interesting about "Potbelly Hill".....
'Göbekli Tepe' is Turkish for "Potbelly Hill". It is an archaeological site in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey, approximately 7 miles northeast of the city of Şanlıurfa. The 'tepe' has a height of 49 feet and is about 980 feet in diameter. It is approximately 2,490 feet above sea level. It's said to be 6,000 years older than Stonehenge.
The area includes two phases of use, believed to be of a social or ritual nature by site discoverer and excavator Klaus Schmidt, dating back to the 10th–8th millennium BCE. During the first phase, belonging to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic A (PPNA), circles of massive T-shaped stone pillars were erected – the world's oldest known megaliths.
More than 200 pillars in about 20 circles are currently known through geophysical surveys. Each pillar has a height of up to 20 feet and weighs up to 10 tons. They are fitted into sockets that were hewn out of the bedrock.The details of the structure's function remain a mystery. It was partially excavated by a German archaeological team under the direction of Schmidt from 1996 until his death in 2014. In 2018, the site was designated an official World Heritage Site.
