i´m going zu turkey to visit some neolitihic Sites as Göbekli Tepe. Recentltly i´ve read about an unexcavated Site ca. 63 Kilometers south-east of Sanliurfa named "Karahan Tepe" Neo-Lithics 2-3/00.
Does anyone know, if the coordinates 37.125415, 39.432301 are correct or has a precise discription, on how to get to the site?
many thanks frome germany

My wife and I were just a few weeks ago in Sanliurfa, to visit Gobekli Tepe and Karahan Tepe. From what we could gather on the web (including having looked at the PDF you reference), KT was an abandoned site, open to wandering. However, when we were in Sanliurfa, our tour operator told us the site was now under excavation, and required a visitor's permit. Supposedly this could be obtained at the museum in Sanliurfa, but when we visited there to see the Balikli Gol Snowman, the office told us we would have to visit the Tourist Office. We gave up!
I will try to contact our tour operator for more information and contact numbers/email addresses, etc.

when i was in Urfa i´ve checked the location 37.125415, 39.432301, a hill approx 2,5 kilometers southeast of a village an a site named Eskikale (old castle). On top of this hill i found a old graveyard an a miracle tree, like in Göbekli Tepe, but no signs of T-shaped pillars, flintstones etc.
I´m in contact now with researchers from the Harran university in Urfa, trying to gain further Information about KT an other sites.

Thanks for sticking with this. I've been back over my notes and see that I never did manage to get a location for KT. Or at least, no better than "near Sogmatar/Yagmurlu." Please post any more information that you may find!
