Tonight at 8pm the National Geographic Channel will air the premiere of a special that was filmed in Turkey titled Cradle of the Gods.
Cradle of the Gods follows American archaeologist Dr Jeff Rose on his journey to Turkey as, along with renowned German archaeologist Professor Klaus Schmidt, he discovers the ancient ruins of Gobekli Tepe, the 12,000 year old temple which holds the key to our ancient past. Schmidt believes this is the first human-built holy place, and that its mysterious stones suggest a novel theory of civilization. Scholars have long believed that it was the advent of a farming society which brought early humans together, propelling us from the Stone Age to the present day. In this revelatory film, Dr Jeff Rose will demonstrate that it was religion which came first: the coordinated effort to build the temple laid the groundwork for the development of complex societies.
Tune in tonight for an in depth look at one of Turkey’s many extraordinary archaeological sites.
