An 11,000-year-old statue unearthed in Turkey appears to show a man holding his penis while standing next to a life-sized boar.

The two statues were found in the Gobekli Tepe archaeological site in southern Turkey, according to LiveScience. Gobekli Tepe is considered the oldest known sites of advanced human development in the world, knocking back the story of our ancestors by millennia.

It was long thought hunter-gatherers only evolved after the end of the last ice age and Younger Dryas. But due to the technological discoveries in Gobekli Tepe and neighboring sites like Karahan Tepe throughout the Tas Tepeler region, we’ve got to start rewriting the history books, as we were clearly more advanced than just hunting and gathering. And new copies of our history books may have to include this latest bizarre discovery.

The phallus-grabbing figure is roughly 7.5 feet tall, Turkey’s ministry of culture and tourism explained. Other details on the statue include the individual’s ribs, spine, and shoulders, suggesting the artist may have been depicting a dead man. The boar statue is roughly 4.4 feet long and 2.3 feet tall.

Being able to build statues this creatively and consistently shouldn’t be possible by Big Archaeology’s standards. The mainstream archaeological community insists human development into agriculture only started around 10,000 years ago. But the evidence shows we were building megalithic structure as parts of large, functional societies well before then.

It’s likely that by the time our children graduate college, we’ll realize the entire story of our past is wrong and that, just maybe, we’re the descendants of a civilization that spanned the Earth more than 12,000 years ago.
