At some point based on the present theory and the evidence we have villages and towns should cease to be found and we will find smaller clan and
family based groups, similar to the the surviving hunter-gathers of the present.
We appear to have evolved from a common ancestor of ourselves and the apes - we had lots of ancestors but it isn't completely clear which one lead
directly to HSS and we had 'competitors' up until just before recorded history.
I would suspect this search above was for the elusive Greek camp of Homer fame - one of the key mysteries of the archaeology world
An interesting point in the article
“We know that almost all settlements older than 5,000 years ago were established on high plateaus.”
