there was a herding tradition [huge pens] plus they were grinding something besides ochre... [maybe some of the native cereals?]. they had grapes, honey, milk [to get really fat on], local obsidian, flints, native amber, gold, silver, tin, copper, zinc, lead, iron, lifestone, ivory, wood, huge thermal caves, hot springs, blue dye, mountains of salt, shovels etc etc.
there was certainly a state religion and their structures were community built [because they were so big].
