This may be my last posting of a Phy.Org piece -- the intrusive push content buries the actual story when I try to copy an excerpt, grab a graphic URL, etc. POS interface. LiveScience is coming up fast behind it, same kind of GARBAGE.

I would prefer that they, meaning the researchers, not jump to conclusions without COMPLETE analysis.

Eight-thousand years ago was when the Persian Gulf flooded with sea-water, and many people were migrating (because of glaciers melting) and seas everywhere rising with the resultant floods inundating the coastlines. Suvivors would follow river valleys up and away from the sea, and the new settlements would be radically different from what the refugees would have known previously.

Asikli Hoyuk is interesting, but it should be viewed in a larger context and NOT assumed to be a place were animal husbandry started. Instead, it just might be a place where refugees from an obliterated civilization, or many civilizations, finally found a place to settle.
