7.Tomb of St. Philip
St. Philip the Apostle was one of the 12 original disciples of Jesus. Archaeologists tried for years to find the site of his tomb and were unsuccessful until 2011 when they finally found it in the ruins of a church in the ancient Turkish city of Hierapolis. Recognized as a martyr of Christianity, Philip is believed to have been either crucified upside down or beheaded in around 80 AD in the southwest province of Denizli. The tomb is expected to become an important pilgrimage destination for Christians. His remains were not in the tomb, they were taken to Rome and buried in the sixth century.

6.Cappadocia Underground Cities
In a central Turkish region known as Cappadocia you can find a massive, sprawling network of underground cities. The largest of these underground cities could house up to 20,000 people. The local people built these cities, which date back to early Byzantine times, to hide from incoming invaders. In 2013, one of the largest underground cities was unearthed when a group of low income homes was destroyed. No one is sure of its exact size because it has not been fully explored but estimates say that this recently uncovered city could plummet as deep as 370 feet.

5.The Germ
Scientifically, the germ was not discovered in Turkey. That would take a microscope, which was not around when the germ was first properly explained by Aksemsettin, a Turkish philosopher and scientist who lived from 1389 to 1459. Not only did he teach Mehmed the Conqueror but he also stated that, “Illness spreads person to person with very little living creatures which we can’t see,” explaining the germ before it was possible to confirm the correct theory.

4.Ancient Stone Tool
A stone knife was unearthed by archaeologists at an ancient site on the Gediz river, on the Anatolian peninsula of Turkey. The tool is believed to be 1.2 million years old, which is far older than humans were thought to have been in this part of the world and is also by far the oldest artifact ever discovered in this part of the world. This discovery is also important in that it helps establish the time and way in which early humans came into the area we now call Europe.

3.Trojan Horse
A team of Turkish archaeologists recently uncovered a large structure made of wooden planks that they believe to be the remains of the infamous Trojan Horse. Carbon dating showed that the structure is from the 12th century B.C., which is around the time the Trojan War is thought to have taken place. The Trojan Horse was long thought to be an analogy for a natural disaster, but this finding suggests that the legend could have been much more steeped in fact than previously believed.

2.Dracula’s Dungeon
Dracula is an incredibly famous novel written by Bram Stoker. The story has captivated and horrified audiences throughout the world since the book was first published in 1897 and countless movies, plays, books and TV shows have been made based off of the legendary tale. What is less known is the tale behind the tale. The character Dracula is believed to have stemmed from Vlad the Impaler, a real life person who was one bad dude. Legend has it that he impaled up to 20,000 people to ward off attacking Ottoman invaders, giving him his grisly nickname. A maze of dungeons and tunnels was discovered beneath Tokat Castle in the heart of Tokat, Turkey that were used by the Ottoman Empire to house prisoners. One of these prisoners was our friend, Vlad the Impaler, who was only a child at the time. His harsh treatment and captivity in this dungeon were believed to have ingrained a cynicism in him that led him to do the horrible things that he would famously go on to do. The site was recently opened to the public.

1.Gobekli Tepe
Klaus Schmidt, a German archaeologist, made a startling discovery in southeast Turkey that could change the way we view history. He found an arrangement of massive carved stone pillars arranged in circles that were about 11,000 years old. These stones were carved and arranged by prehistoric people that had not yet developed metal tools. If you ask Schmidt, the site represents the first human built holy place. What has been unearthed is remarkable, but it is a very small part of what remains to be excavated. It certainly opens the door to a lot of questions. How were prehistoric humans able to move and arrange these pillars with the simple tools that they had to use? What was the purpose of building this site? These questions remain a mystery that may be lost forever to the passing of time.
