Happy Taruw'ah to all!

Nearly 7,000-year-old city unearthed
Archaeologists announced the discovery of an ancient settlement on the shores of the Dardanelles yesterday, estimating that the recently unearthed ruins may be roughly 7,000 years old.

A group of scientists and archeologists from Canakkale (Dardanelles) University have found traces of a lost city, older than famed Troy, now buried under the waters of Dardanelles strait.
Led by associate professor Rüstem Aslan, the archeology team made a surface survey in the vicinity of Erenkoy, Canakkale on the shore. The team has found ceramics and pottery, what led them to ponder a mound could be nearby. A research on The found pottery showed that the items belonged to an 7000 years old ancient city. The team has intensified the research and discovered first signs of the lost city under the waters of Dardanalles Strait.
Lost city found in Turkey: It is older than Troy
The lost city lies in the sea floor in the Aegean entrance of the strait on the shores of Europen side. The professor told”the pottery indicates the city is from around 5000 BC. We believe the civilizations on the shores of Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits had been buried under water. This latest mound discovered is also 90% under water and gives significant hints on the sea levels then.”
The latest discovery of the ancient city is as important as the funda in the ongoing digs in the Marmaray Project in Istanbul, the historians and scientists state.




Maybe this city is more like nearly 6000 years old. Could it be the city that Qayin built? Interesting that H2596 means narrow because the Dardanelles is a narrow strait in northwestern Turkey connecting the Aegean Sea to the Sea of Marmara.

The Dardanelles is a 61km (28 mile) strait between Europe and Asiatic Turkey. The maximum width is 7km and in the area known as the Narrows, the distance is no more than 1,600 metres. The Dardanelles Straits are overlooked by high cliffs on the Gallipoli Peninsula.


Gen 4:17 And Qayin knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Ḥanoḵ. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son, Ḥanoḵ (H2585).

From H2596; initiated; Chanok, an antediluvian patriarch: - Enoch.

A primitive root; properly to narrow (compare H2614); figuratively to initiate or discipline: - dedicate, train up.

The problem is Qayin settled east of Eden and I think that this is west or south-west of Eden.

Gen 4:16 So Qayin went out from the presence of יהוה and dwelt in the land of Noḏ on the east (H6926) of Ěḏen.

Feminine of H6924; the forward part (or relatively) East (often adverbially on the East or in front): - east (-ward).

קדמה קדם
qedem qêdmâh
keh'-dem, kayd'-maw
From H6923; the front, of palce (absolutely the fore part, relatively the East) or time (antiquity); often used adverbially (before, anciently, eastward): - aforetime, ancient (time), before, east (end, part, side, -ward), eternal, X ever (-lasting), forward, old, past. Compare H6926.

Gee, I wonder why this city is underwater? Any thoughts?

Perhaps the regional flood during Noach's lifetime caused that condition.
