AN ancient carved elephant tusk has been unearthed in Turkey after 2,800 years.
The rare artifact is etched with a drawing of a tree of life next to a sphinx and a lion, according to researchers.
The archaeological site is called Hattusa and it’s located in modern-day Turkey.
Hattusa is thought to have been the Hittite capital thousands of years ago.
It was mysteriously left burned and abandoned, potentially due to conflict.
