And oops, sorry, that age figure should have been 11,000 years, not 11,500 years.
The abstract doesn’t include this, but in the full article there is mention of a brewing trough that the archaeologists reckon could have held up to 400 gallons of beer. Maybe Gobekli Tepe was just a big party spot. (I found that bit about the beer trough quoted in another article referencing the scientific paper.)
You drink that much beer and you're bound to lose track of time!
“. . . that age figure should have been 11,000 years . . .”
11,000 years. Never gets old, does it?
How time flys when your drinking beer.
