Modern Humans With Bows and Arrows Invaded France 54,000 Years Ago


Around 54,000 years ago, a group of anatomically modern humans forayed into southern France, intruding deep into the stamping ground of Neanderthals. And they came prepared, bearing the first bow and arrow technology to reach Europe – a good 10,000 years earlier than we assumed. Not that it helped them survive.

History of Rice Cultivation  The current scientific consensus, based on archaeological and linguistic evidence, is that Oryza sativa rice was first domesticated in the Yangtze River basin in China 13,500 to 8,200 years ago. From that first cultivation, migration and trade spread rice around the world - first to much of east Asia and then further abroad and eventually to the Americas as part of the Columbian exchange.

 There was indeed contact during what we call “ prehistory “. Genetic evidence ( and physical evidence) suggests that ancient humans from the Japanese islands traveled down the west coast of America several thousands of years ago. Physical evidence of that journey was left in the Channel Islands and in Peru. Additionally, a 5 thousand year old “rocker” skull was discovered in a cave in Brazil. The skull is a direct link to the South Pacific Islanders. Chickens came from those travelers from the South Pacific. These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ancient contact. Tobacco and coca leaves were discovered in an Egyptian pharaohs tomb. Both of those items are indigenous to the “New world” exclusively.
