Always interesting when something which has been accepted for years is reinterpreted.

Reminiscent from when a Merovingian tomb excavated in the 18th century was presumed to have a number of stylus's (now lost) Odd considering they were largely illiterate.

Now know to be clothes brooches

I love the way science "self-corrects!"
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Another example of the "male centric" point of view so long accepted in the histories studies.

If I remember correctly,it was a female student that noticed that one of the "Venus" statuettes had braided hair.
An indication of personal appearance concern in early humans.

I, for one, welcome the added point of view.
