The seat of the soul is where the inner world and the outer world meet. Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap. - Novalis

First Came the Temple

Rethinking the Neolithic

For those who, like me, missed the stunning news about what is surely the most important archaeological find since Troy:

In the words of Klaus Schmidt, the principal investigator: "First came the Temple, then the city."

In the popular press:
Gobekli Tepe: The World's First Temple with this photo Gallery. by Andrew Collins, Smithsonian Magazine;
Nicholas Birch in The Guardian: 7,000 Years Older than Stonehenge.
Sandra Scham in Archaeology: The World's First Temple.

(Borrowed from the excellent wikipedia page.)
