To be Researched
he stories below are flood stories from the world's folklore. I have included stories here if (1) they are stories; (2) they are folklore, not historical accounts or fiction by a known author; and (3) they involve a flood. In most borderline cases, I included the story here anyway. For example, one story ( Hopi ) tells of a flood which was avoided and never occurred. My method for collecting these stories is simply to collect every flood story I find. I have omitted a few extremely fragmentary accounts, such as sources that say "These people have a legend of a flood in which most people were killed" and little or nothing more.
Göbekli Tepe Turkish: [ɡøbe̞kli te̞pɛ] [ 2 ] ("Potbelly Hill" [ 3 ] ) is a Neolithic hilltop sanctuary erected at the top of a mountain ridge in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey , some 15 kilometers (9 mi) northeast of the town of Şanlıurfa (formerly Urfa / Edessa ). It is the oldest known human-made religious structure. [ 1 ] [ 4 ] The site was most likely erected in the 10th millennium BCE and has been under excavation since 1994 by German and Turkish archaeologists. [ 5 ] Together with Nevalı Çori , it has revolutionized understanding of Eurasian Neolithic history. [ 6 ] [ edit ] Discovery Göbekli Tepe, Şanlıurfa, 2011 Göbekli Tepe is located in southeastern Turkey. It was first noted in a survey conducted by Istanbul University and the University of Chicago in 1964, which recognized that the hill could not entirely be a natural feature and postulated that a Byzantine cemetery lay beneath.
