A press release from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland states:
“Analysis of symbols carved onto stone pillars at Gȍbekli Tepe in southern Turkey – one of the world’s most important archaeological sites – suggests that a swarm of comet fragments hit Earth around 11,000BC. They ushered in a cold climate that lasted more than 1,000 years.”
The engineers doing research on the event studied carvings of animals on a pillar called the Vulture Stone at Gȍbekli Tepe. They interpreted the carvings as astronomical symbols and tracked their positions to star patterns. The computer software they used dated the swarm of comet fragments to around 11000 BC.
“The dating from the carvings agrees well with timing derived from an ice core from Greenland, which pinpoints the event – probably resulting from the break-up of a giant comet in the inner solar system – to 10,890BC .” [ via University of Edinburgh press release]
