When on Google Earth 56

OK, after getting the correct answer to WOGE 55 (without the aid of Geoff's pizza clue, I hasten to add), which was the site of Nemrut Dagi near Adiyaman in south-east Turkey, here is my challenge for WOGE 56:

If you can identify this site and its main period of occupation, then post your comment below. It's late at night here and I'm too technically challenged to reproduce the list of previous winners, but you can always join the new Facebook group to keep up to date with WOGE.

The Rules of When on Google Earth are as follows:

Q: What is When on Google Earth?

A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it?
A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins?

A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get?

A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!


  1. It's Choirokoitia, Cyprus. Neolithic, [aceramic for those who care], now you know I am unemployable!

  2. 2 am, Geoff?
    This brings the towel war to a whole new level!
    But seriously: well spotted.

  3. Geoff took on my challenge and solved WOGE 56 while most of us Europeans were sleeping - well done, Geoff!

  4. Morning all, quiet night?
    WOGE 57 now up at:
    Have fun
