9M-year-old Fossils Unearthed in Denzili, Turkey
There are many fossils in the Turkish city of Denizli that can shed light on a part of history.
According to the ECO Cultural Institute, quoting Anadolu News Agency, fossils of eight different animals, including mammoths and rhinos, have been found during excavations in the western Turkish province of Denizli, which are estimated to date back to 1.2 to 9 million years ago.
Scientists believe that the history of these fossils is as old as the fossil of the ancient Anatolian people found in the same area in 2002.
Research on Denizli since 2017 has found many animal fossils. Among the latest finds is the fossil of a mammoth that indicates the existence of life in Denizli during the period. Examining the fossil, which is the mammoth’s mandible, experts say they have made a very important discovery. The discovery of the fossil of an anteater as a very rare animal in Anatolia is also notable during recent research.
