Cool! You do find the neatest stuff, blam! It continually amazes me that “modern” scientists can be so obtuse. They tell us our ancestors were nomadic hunter-gatherers. OK. I can buy that-they’d have followed the migratory herds, etc. Why are they alwasy so surprised that these people traded? They’d have to, and not just for survival. Trading is a basic human instinct. Ooh, I like that. I’ll give you 10 x for 1 y.
Saw a program a long time ago—wish I’d gotten the name. There were a bunch of tracks in solid rock, what had at one time been mud. The “scientists” couldn’t figure out waht they were. I took one quick glance at their unidentifiable tracks and burst out laughing. Anyone raised on a farm—a wet, muddy farm—would have picked up on it immediately. There were obvious human prints, but the ones the scientists had no clue about were the tracks of wheeled carts, etc, pulled by horses or some other beast of burden.
