Here we present annually resolved and absolutely dated dendroarchaeological information from four wooden water wells of the early Neolithic period

reveal unexpectedly refined carpentry skills. The recently discovered water wells enable for the first time a detailed insight into the earliest wood
architecture and display the technological capabilities of humans ~7000 years ago.
This was done 1,000 years before the use of metal tools. We're used to seeing evidence of neolithic activity in Egypt or the ancient Middle East, but
few signs of it have survived from Europe. Here we see early European populations were just as capable of complex construction techniques as those
that would rise in the Middle East millenniums later.
It says - reveal unexpectedly refined carpentry skills - European populations were just as capable of complex construction techniques as those that
would rise in the Middle East millenniums later.
WHY is there Any surprise at all? These are Not monkeys we are talking about, they are Men ( and or women)
Why is it so hard to believe that humans 7000 years ago or older could have these abilities? This is Simple Woodworking. This isn't even an Escher
carving. I fully expect these humans to be way more advanced than this and this is just what happened to survive. Yet this simple woodworking is
delegated to the realm of "unexpectedly refined carpentry skills" - says Who? The monkey with the Phd?
There are No facts that prove ancient man was as simple as today's modern science makes them out to be. This is done to sell the theory that Man has
Evolved by today's scientific vernacular. I find the wording of this article highly insulting to humans everywhere. Who is to say that at the time the
first modern humans appeared they did not have fully functioning mental facilities? Humans had over 193 thousand years to develop before these people
came and built the wooden boxes.. surely they learned a thing or two in that time. Modern Humans appeared on the scene about 200,000 years ago.
