It is found in Turkey, possibly the oldest temple in the world. It resembles Stonehenge and excavation was started in 1995. It's pretty cool, just heard of it today.

Sk8, you really get around! You know who else might have been there, or at least heard about it? @bioarchnomad

I didn't know mentioning a username made a notification until just now @susanr!

I haven't been to Gobekli Tepe, though I really want to visit and/or work on the excavations. It's constantly used as an archaeological case study in my courses, it's a fascinating site (and within my regional research interests). If I end up in the Eurasian Studies MA program I applied to, I'm hoping to get a chance to visit sometime soon. Lots of big name archaeologists are involved with the site (though none I know personally).

See, I knew you'd at least be familiar with it!

Yes, "tagging" started being a feature some months ago. You can use either @ or # just before the user name, but no other characters or punctuation before or after, not even a period (or it thinks that's part of the name). Very useful.

And you only get a notification if you have that turned on - I believe they turned it on for everyone at the start. But you can turn it off (not sure why anyone would, though). I think it's listed as "Poll/comment mention" in the list of notification options.
