Dating stone age style...







Neolithic age men fought over women too, according to a study that provides the most ancient evidence of the lengths men will go to in the hunt for partners.

Some things never change.... remember the episode from early Roman history called the Rape of the Sabine women?

Rome at the time was barely a city state and they had a severe shortage of women so they raided the neighboring city state and stole their women.

It has been the subject of some famous old master's paintings.

Will happen again if the SHTF... women are commodities when society breaks down, proven time and again here and there around the world in recent years.

The most common reasons for war in non-state societies is:

94% Revenge, retaliation and defense against same

70% Economic (booty, land, poaching, slaves)

58% Women

36% Peronsal glory

nc Political

non-state warfare kills about .5% of the population per year. To give you an idea of how deadly that is. If states had engaged in this type of fighting since 1900 there would have been 2 Billion casualities.

As recorded in existing and historic hunter-gathers
From Keeley's War before Civilization

So women were a prime reason for war

It wouldn't surprise me that much. I am kinda surprised though that they are basing this more on the formation of the group to base the basis of the attack. They could have just as easily been spoils.
Th eodd part would be though the females from the other tribe, apparently the winners, who died. They may have died in the attack, but if they were viewed as property, then why were they included as fighters.

I think they were stretching the evidence.

Yeah, maybe it was the women that killed all the men they found to be inadequate for the task :p

One never knows-it may have been an orgy that went a little to far in the conduct of a spanking game.

Hanslune? did you just say "may have?". That is speculation if I ever heard it. To assume an orgy could go bad. j/k

I haven't witnessed men fighting over women near as much as over spilt beer! Maybe they were redneck parties gone bad.

I speculate all the time but I make sure people know its speculation and not an evidence based opinion.
