I have a microlith made out of Libyan Desert Glass which I acquired over 12 years ago.
It came from the last legal plane load out of Egypt.
They now tell me some of these were faked,
but hydration should show the fakes from the real ones.
Common sense is also a help. I have the holy grail if you want it. Just send $300,000 and it's yours.
Incidently I wouldn't try selling your ancient (12 years) piece of Libyan desert glass, there must be fraud laws even in Ohio.
It is interesting to watch you struggle with the name for the early homonid ancestor emigrating out of Africa.
I had a lot of shit thrown at me for using Homo Heidelbergensis
at the time I wrote "Man and Impact in the Americas",
despite careful discussion in the footnotes.
Now we have that new ancestor from Siberia.
It is amazing how little impact your witterings have.
Moving on to plant domestication,
the Americas provide interesting information
which may be compared with that from Eurasia.
No one could argue with this truism.
It appears that Speciation comes before Planting and then Breeding.
We know from Poverty Point of a couple of early attempts at finding domesticates .
Also, we have the preparation of grazing sites for game animals.
At Gobekli Tepe, one of the most important domesticates appears to have been chickpeas,
major protein source for the entire region, as seen in today's Falafels.
Gibberish and misuse of information, as usual. Pretended expertise. In reality the information from GT is much exagerated and disputed.
Today's major domesticates were developed by river irrigation civilizations in the mountain valleys of the Andes.
Only as pity then that the Andean civilisations did not have any domestic animals apart from Llamas and Alpacas Haven't heard of ancient Andean sheep, cattle andf horses. Queer the Conquistadores did not mention them.
Are we sure we do not mean Talahasee Ohio?
We have fairly detailed Spanish reports of semi-domesticated deer from the Carolinas,
which I passed on in "Man and Impact in the Americas".
spice, your comment about dogs has particular relevance to Meso-American cultures.
Really and how do you "semi-domesticate Deer"? Do we mean Reindeer? How did the Sami people get to the Carolinas? Perhaps this is yet another of your papers "The Finnish settlements in pre columbian America."
Boat building technologies were also set out in the same book.
Besides the dominant dug out technologies,
Pacific Ocean coastal watercraft technologies were briefly reviewed there as well,
drawing upon Thor Hyerdahl's work on these.
Which is another reason not to bother reading it. Stick to Erik Von Daniken, he is a lot more credible.
In closing off these notes,
It is interesting that the Inca himself set out on a voyage to the western Pacific
following on the Great Wall of Water impact mega-tsunami,
a voyage most likely undertaken to find out what had happened
to regular visitors who no longer showed up.
Yes he took an owl and a pussycat with him I beleive. When did he do this? After chatting to the little green men?
Great Wall of Water impact mega-tsunami,
this is in fact a ride at Waterworld. $15 a go, it's not literate but it is a bargain.
