Description
Gobekli Tepe predates even Agriculture, and is the oldest known man-made religious site on Earth, predating Stonehenge by some 7000 years. Built in Turkey, near the Syrian border, the site wasn't identified until the 1960's, when it was thought to be a Byzantine cemetery. The site was not excavated properly until 1995, when the true nature was revealed. Several of the large monolithic pillars, which were all quarried on site with flint tools and transported uphill with Neolithic technologies, feature animal motifs which are believed to be sacred. Ingame, Gobekli Tepe provides +2 Faith from every source of Stone and Marble worked by the city, and does not require a technology.

Please add a requirement that stone or marble be claimed by the city. Troll AIs like Russia build it even though Stonehenge is available.

There are a lot of prehistory wonders, if a person is interested in this stuff, and still people look for 'missing' link between past and present. It just keeps going back and back and back. Why not make a prehistory game version mod, because as far as establishment history goes, pottery is the only accomplishment pre historic people achieved.

@Pouakai, don't know enough about how these mods work/interact to judge. If it would adversely affect other mods [not sure what that would be] this is not worthy of a major effort. But I do not understand why there would be ANY prerequisite necessary to qualify as "ancient". It seems to me that any "wonder" created prior to the "classical" era prerequisite [whatever that may be] should qualify.
There's a "Prehistory" mod that has a couple of wonders that may have the same problem. However, I'm not sure it's possible to get any religion established that early in the game.

I could probably set the prereq tech as being Agriculture, which would make it an ancient (and not pre-ancient) wonder. Would still be available from the start but would have more issues with other mods. What do you reckon?

@Pouakai, noted in recent games that the Religion belief Monuments Construction 15% production bonus [for "Ancient" & "Classical" wonders] is not applied to Gobekli Tepe. Surely it must qualify as at least ancient. Must be missing some trigger in the code??
Had not noticed this earlier as I finished GT prior to that Belief. But I got that social policy unusually early in last 2 games. Don't know whether there are others of your wonderful wonders with that glitch but I'll try some as I am able in future games.
