From what I’m gathering, Gobekli Tepe, located on the northern edge of the Fertile Crescent, gets most of the recognition for being “the site” providing the best and oldest evidence of human remains, but then I found Pestera cu Oase.
“The Cave With Bones” is located in Ania, a city in Caras-Severin county in Southwestern Romania. In this cave, some of the oldest European early modern human remains have been found that are between 37,000 and 42,000 years old.
To give you an idea of how old the remains in Romania actually are, the remains in Gobekli Tepe date back to 9,500 B.C., which is almost 12,000 years old now when you add our current year, 2020 to 9,500. (Remember, we’re dealing with B.C. and A.D. here.) Gobekli Tepe is 5,500 years older than the first cities of Mesopotamia, and 7,000 years older than Stonehenge.
If this information is accurate, Pestera cu Oase is at least three times older than what we’ve already found!
