Yes I still am looking for that article, how frustrating.
Although I remember you saying that the new Turkish temple found which predates agriculture, housings, etc reminded you of the finds in Dresden.
I know in Ancient Egypt they used sleeping Temples for curing the ill
which were thought to have led into Greece during times everything was still centered around the gods and rituals at Temples where people bathed and slept along with if they were cured, they were to bring the largest stones back to the temple as they could for an offering. However the Turkish Temple obviously predates all of this, and I'm guessing maybe not as much was centered around religious or spiritual rituals concerning health or otherwise maybe, but more for protection and safety. I'm guessing wet weather would not be great for sleeping in ditches, but because I'm guessing at that time there were not many enclosed structures besides caves?, it would have been a wise place to rest under the protection of the Gods possibly....if they had been on travel, kind of like a man made cave away from home. Possibly how we put up tents today. ok maybe not LOL Because I do know around 11,000 bp I think, they built tent like structures on the plains and more open land out of hides and large bones (tusks and such from mammoths)
But around 11,500bp there were known to be alot of movement of peoples and was known as a time of portable art as well from what I have read. Maybe the Turkish temple was used by a shaman on a hunting vision quest. Will we ever know?
