News & Notes from the Göbekli Tepe Research Staff

Holiday Greetings & a Happy New Year!

Putting down roots

They came to the Hill
Carved into stone,
Hunting with the group –
Or praying alone.

Whose Gods were they?
Sacrificing prey,
Feasting divine.
Sharing their sign.

Reaping those fruits,
Putting down roots.
Planting einkorn.
Our Age was born.

    Beautiful. I read it with Iron Maiden Run to the hill melody in mind and it was perfect.
