Skip to comments.Lost city found in Turkey: It is older than Troy
Posted on 09/27/2011 6:16:07 PM PDT by SunkenCiv
A group of scientists and archeologists from Canakkale (Dardanelles) University have found traces of a lost city, older than famed Troy, now buried under the waters of Dardanelles strait.
Led by associate professor Rustem Aslan, the archeology team made a surface survey in the vicinity of Erenkoy, Canakkale on the shore. The team has found ceramics and pottery, what led them to ponder a mound could be nearby. A research on the found pottery showed that the items belonged to an 7000 years old ancient city. The team has intensified the research and discovered first signs of the lost city under the waters of Dardanalles Strait.
The lost city lies in the sea floor in the Aegean entrance of the strait on the shores of Europen side. The professor told "the pottery indicates the city is from around 5000 BC. We believe the civilizations on the shores of Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits had been buried under water. This latest mound discovered is also 90% under water and gives significant hints on the sea levels then."

That’s like only yesterday compared to Gobekli Tepe!
Poor Helen. Back in those days, she was quite a Looker.
The sea level has risen about 300 feet since the last ice age ended. The really ancient civilizations are on the continental shelves which ring the continents. Look there my friend and you will be amazed. I would look at the old river mouths for starters.
More proof of the Genesis flood.
Faked, like the moon landing. God's earth will celebrate its 6,245th birthday come October.
Well I looked on Wikimapia and I didn’t see a damn thing but the Canakkale strait. Erenkoy strait and Bosphorus strait wasn’t anywhere around. Can’t they keep these maps up to date. Sheesh!
Erenkoy strait and Bosphorus strait wasn’t anywhere around.
Bosphorus strait and Erenkoy and wasn’t anywhere around.
Aah forget it.
Uh, professor, we already know what sea levels were then with a fair degree of accuracy. Sea levels have been rising for the last 11,000 years at a fairly constant rate and have totaled about 800 feet over that time period.
I've been trying to think through what these things are like and what they are doing ~ first off they'd be detectible only from space, and at the same time they could cause some sea levels on some shores to drop.
They probably explain the biological anomaly discovered in Alaska a couple of decades back. The guy found the terminal forests were at a lower elevation than the immediate post Ice Age bogs along the rain forest area South of Juneau. The theory had been that the bogs came first, then the trees, but there the trees came first then the bogs.
The only way to explain it was for the sea level in that region to be dropping while it was rising further up the coast North of Juneau. However, there were no geological signs of subsidance.
The guys who have the job of understanding this currently put little store in sea level data having much relevance to anything ~ particularly no the predictions of cities being flooded suddenly while their citizens stand there dumbfounded and drown.
A very smart man in the crowd took one look at that and said, “That looks like a Trojan horse to me.” Nobody knew what the hell he was talking about, and the rest is history.
LOL........".concern yourself NOT with endless genealogies"
Look, just because her senior class picture can be found painted on a cave wall in France...
The Canakkale Strait is another name for the Dardanelles.
The New Scientific Discoveries
About The Event
That Changed History

Your first line. Yes. That’s why if the earth ever gets something that tilts its axis rather violently all that momentum is going to cause catastrophic flooding.
Obviously the city of Turducken.
Lost cuz it was hidden in a duck.....
In the seventeenth century Archbishop James Ussher of the Church of Ireland calculated that the earth was created on October 23 4004 BC at 9 AM--and we must assume that it was Pacific Daylight Time. In 1972, my geology class at Occidental College met at 9 AM on October 23, so the Geology Department held a surprise party in the classroom to celebrate Earth's birthday. Our professor, the noted glaciologist Joe Birman, apparently was taken by surprise, but he gave an impromptu speech celebrating the occasion. The event made the evening news on the local television stations.
So what are your thoughts on Copernicus and Galileo?
They are both dead........still
Were those two males married?
(I mean “weren’t”, and I meant to each other?)
:’) So that’s what was the mallard.
Not only dead, but they might have been wrong! Read this morning’s WSJ on how Saint Albert Einstein might have been after all dead wrong in his relativity!
Thanks. I saw that. Interesting places, this world.
Too bad we can’t all get along and enjoy all of it.
Great Post as usual Sunkenciv.
I will be celebrating my 7th anniversary of quitting nicotiana tabacum on October 4th. What a coincidence!
Very interesting find.
You speak as if you have secret knowledge.
There is evidence of very thick salt deposits on the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. When the Ice Age ended the water was probably much evaporated, and only when the ocean level was as high as the bottom of the Straits of Gibralter did it start to refill. There may have been times as the level became higher and the bottom more eroded that the ocean rushed it with a great flood.
The problem for human beans in this cycle is that there weren't any 7 myr ago, and 8 tyr ago no one seems to have had writing.
The Med dried up a number of times — most recently about 5 million years ago. It was filled approximately as we see it today when the Black Sea got connected to the rest of the seas, approximately 7500 years ago.
I quite agree CTP. That’s where all the action has been for most of the last 2 million years or so, during the come-and-go ice ages.
At least 40 times. There are deep scouring marks on the inside bottom at Gibralter.
I suspect that the Mediterranean was somewhat lower (and stable) at a point prior to the end of the Ice Age.
When the 'break-through' ocurred at Gibralter and the Med began filling swamping the many islands...there would have been refugees everywhere...coastal towns would have been flooded also. It would be enough to make a person believe that the whole world was flooding and rush to build a big boat way up on one of the Ararat mountains.
When the break-though ocurred at the Bosphorus, it just confirmed that the end was near.
BTW, I also suspect that the mummies from the Tarim Basin may have been refugees from all this flooding...they were pushed way out to the margins of liveable areas.
These refugees probably spread farming and the Indo-European languages across greater Europe too.
