First off, if it relates to the spread of culture within europe and
the middle east it relates to archaeology.
Second off, even if it is speculative, it is no more speculative than
the 90% of this group devoted to viking nonsense.
Third off, I have an interest in the archaeology of food, and between
8000 and 4000 years ago this holoregion saw one of the fastest
evolutions of one of the worlds predominant grains. I have some
genetic evidence suggesting that peoples to one part of europe
appeared to have migrated from the bosporous regions about that time,
moreover it appears that the migration appears to have had important
cultural consequences in the interior of europe itself.
