In my readings in Biblical Archeology, I've not run across this before:
> Gobekli Tepe. Monument stones, dated to 10,000 BC, were intentionally
> buried a couple thousand years later. I was not aware of any sites dated
> that far back with even the faintest connection to Bible History.
> (Beware wrapped long links; I chose the second because the original
> appears on a page loaded with risqué images.)
> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6bekli_Tepe
> Anyone heard or read about this before? Not that I consider this
> necessarily connected to Eden, but I find it interesting.

Ed, the first link doesn't make any connection to Bible
history. The second link speculates that the may have been the Garden of
Eden, but the author plays very fast and loose with the interpretation
of Scripture and engages in a lot of speculation -- probably an attempt
to get people interested in the archaeology they are doing there. From
what is described, this doesn't match the description of the Garden of
Eden -- it better resembles the place where Adam and Eve went when they
were tossed out of the Garden of Eden, not the Garden itself.

Hope this helps,
