Archaeologist unearthed numerous artefacts at the site of the Neolithic mound of Ekşi Höyük, Denizli, West Turkey, that seems to date back 8600 years.
The researchers have found five distinct sets of human bones found at the site, among which is a skeleton of a male that seems unusually big with a very distinct skull. Archaeologists believe that the site was inhabited 8600 years ago, judging from all the remains, and artefacts, including tools that were excavated. They state, however, that there was a possibility the mound was used as far back as 9,000-10,000 years ago.
