Thanks for a brilliant thread I look forward to reading more about their discoveries as as when.
I did read a book once that was about the ancient salt trade lines and the author thought was the first sign of mankind trading over vast distances.
I still wonder if man evolved all around the fertile areas at a similar time rather than just out of one place because the early homo erectus etc was
not just in one area. Its probably going to be hard to really ever be sure because fossils get destroyed, moved and may only come to light when an
expert digs them up.
Currently a very interesting dig in Exeter which has found the earlist piece of 'parchment' with writing on it, thought to be Roman, has just been
shut down by the Council due to funding. I can never make up my mind whether there is some kind of conspiracy to keep history as we currently learn
it, despite it being obviously incorrect or is the Exeter dig, which who knows what would have been found there, is just shut down due to lack of
money. I hate our history having to play second fiddle to some of our government's illustrious ways of spending our money.
