Gobekli Tepe is the oldest complex of stone circles and sanctuaries anywhere in the world. At 11,500 years old it was apparently built in SE Turkey at the end of the last Ice Age by simple hunter-gatherers. Yet some of its megalithic structures contain blocks as much as 15 tonnes a piece, with a height of 5.5 metres. Who really built this monument, and why?

Andrew Collins shows that Gobekli Tepe was constructed to target the stars. He demonstrates conclusively that it was directed towards the Cygnus constellation, which since 15,000 BC has been seen as the entrance to the sky-world, where life began and souls return to in death. Yet as an astral gateway it was not just used by the souls of the dead to reach the afterlife, or unborn souls to reach incarnation, but also by the souls of shamans journeying between this world and the next.

Andrew is a writer of ancient and more modern mysteries, and the author of over a dozen books including From the Ashes of Angels (1996), The Cygnus Mystery (2006), Beneath the Pyramids (2009) and Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (2014).
