Marco Polo Travel Series Returns with an Exclusive Event:
Following the last Ice Age, human culture entered a new era of adaptation and change termed the Neolithic. Early in this period, almost 12,000 years ago, people in ancient Anatolia built enigmatic structures that could be the world’s first megalithic ritual site - Göbekli Tepe. The ancient complex is so vast that, though archaeologists have been busy excavating it since its discovery in 1994, it still holds many secrets. Along the way, they’ve uncovered strange animal carvings, towering stone pillars, and the earliest known evidence of megalithic rituals. They’re still working to unravel the site’s biggest mysteries: Who built it, and why?
