10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Prehistoric Europe

12763 ratings | 638040 views
The word “prehistory” refers to the earliest period of human development, up until the start of recorded events. But since the world evolved differently in terms of its humanity, prehistory starts and ends at different times, in different regions. Europe is no exception to this rule. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Non Anglos complaining about the Imperial system, on their internet device, speaking English. Sweet, sweet irony.
interwebjedi (14 days ago)
+Andy Evers no one is debating the perceived accuracy or modernity of the metric system. But to use your own analogy, owning a prius and living in a major city doesnt make you any better than a rancher that still uses horses to herd cattle, in fact, it would most likely mean the rancher can both ride a horse and drive a vehicle, and the prius owner cannot. Which is to say, acting superior because you chose to ignore the actual application of the imperial system in real life in favor of metric, doesnt make any sense. And yet, metric users still line up to complain and tout how educated you are, until someone speaks English.
Andy Evers (14 days ago)
interwebjedi horses are still functional but then why arent they used anymore like they used to? Because we came up with an even more functional way of transport But then of course horses are still commonly used in underdeveloped countrys. So there that. Being first with a solution does not mean and never meant that theres no other more logical and better functioning solution.
interwebjedi (14 days ago)
You use metric because your country didnt have a functional standard system of weight and measure. They adopted metrication in a vacuum, with no barrier to entry. Brittain, the US and other anglophone countries already had a functional system with billions invested into infrastructure built upon said system. You 'think' you are special and progressive because your country chose to use 1 arbitrary measure over another. The irony, since your first comment mind you, is how you think showing up to the party a few centuries late and complaining that you dont understand a common measure in an age of internet makes you educationally superior.

+interwebjedi the rest of the world use metric because it makes sense. Btw Imperial is British, not American... and even they use metric now, in a weird way but what can you say to the people who drive on the wrong side of the road.
interwebjedi (14 days ago)
There are no 'common' people in the US, and everyone learns metric and imperial. Everyone outside of purely scientific fields prefers the use of imperial because it is logical and traditional. Now, people from countries that had no standard measures or industrial systems reliant upon them get to parade around the internet because you adopted the french system of saying an inch is 25mm, and then getting pissy that you cant do conversions, like a commoner.

Feet? Miles? Come on now, it is not the dark ages anymore. Use international standard units

[... Some special uses still apply non-metric units almost globally (such as inches for bicycles and television sets, feetin aviation, and knots and nautical miles in maritime contexts and aviation), although few are of interest to the average traveller. ..] Sounds like sumbuddy doesn't like working in fractions.

Hmm, sorry that is quite unprecise. If you are referring to the Cerutti Mastodon near San Diego, that is precisely dated, but there is no acknowledged proof that it was manipulated by humans. That is plausible to some degree, not more. Science needs more data on this topic. So it is too early for new maps, especially when nobody can offer an acceptable explanation on how humans should have gotten there at that given time.

The oldest manuscript found in Vinca will be excepted only when todays Serbia gets occupied by EU because everything that has to do with Serbia never gets excepted by the world because Serbia isn’t excepted.... everything has to do with politics... unfortunately for the people and knowledge, history, archeology etc! 😔

Is a pitty that real romanian researchers don't make any real effort to combat this fake history trend, letting a shadow of doubt hover above their whole field of research.

The Solutrean hypthesis is defunct...It is wrong, and racist in it's attempt to supplant aboriginal Americans with Europeans. Likewise, linguistic evidence clearly shows that aboriginal American languages (like Dine {Navajo}) are older, and likely progenitors of related languages in Asia. It;s important to drop the Eurocentric lens when discussing pre-columbian America.

Burning the town down on purpose would eliminate parasites and vermin. Temporarily, of course. You can bet they had their prized possessions stacked around the site, along with building materials, to rebuild quickly after the fire - and so some of the noxious residents would have survived. But it's a perfectly rational practice, all the same.

Trying to find a nice way to break to modern Balkan residents that the Slavs inhabited the area In the 16th century AD. Anything dated before that time has nothing to do with them.

The southslavs doesnt look anything like the poles, russians etc. The southslavs are a mix of three groups mainly. The aboriginals of the balkans, the goths, latins and a little bit of slavs.
Zingam (2 months ago)
There are no Slavs on the Balkans. True Slavs are the Czechs, the Slovaks, the Poles and some of the Ukrainians. The so called Slavs on the Balkans are descendand from the Daco-Thracians (the first Indo-European speaks who migrated to the Balkans), the Illyrians (the second Indo-European group) and the Macedon (which were obviously related to the Thracians and the Illyrians but not to the Helenics... something modern Greeks like to lie about because they were beaten and conquered by them). The so called Slavs appeared only after the Balkans were invaded and settled first by Italics then by Celts, Germanics, Slavs and Hunno-Turkics. There was no population replacement on the Balkans, just a few more migrants were added to the gene pool. The oldest proto-European population before the Indo-European invasions you can find in Bosnia, Bulgaria inbetween and in Scandinavia, which are men carrying the I haplogroup. Greeks and Albanians have mostly the E haplogroup as well a spot in central Bulgaria, which came from North Africa. So if you want to find the people who are mostly related to the oldest Europeans you should go to Bosnia.

There is new genetic evidence that Dogs did NOT originate from the wof, but rather there was a previous wild dog species separate from the wolf that coexsisted along with humans for up to 50-60 thousands years ago. These dogs were not domesticated yet but did live off the scraps of human societies as well as hunted small game like coyotes and African Painted dogs do today. These dogs wouldn't turn away a easier to get meal in hard times from human left overs from camps or butchering sites after a hunt.

We should all put everything we think we know about "prehistory" on hold pending further information. Especially, dump everything we think we know, until extensive underwater archeology is done. Go to where shoreline would be with -420 feet sea level, go to the mouth of a river back then and look around there, because where else would a city/state be? Search what would have been surrounding low-lands back then because that would be the bread-basket of any ice-age culture. Especially just offshore from any harbor at that time, because where else will garbage and old parts and junk go? Everything here is recent history, like almost all our supposed "earliest writing" and civilizations. 8000 years ago is recent. Most of human history was during the ice age and what would be low-lands around the world back then, are untouched ever since. Every site above water has been mined for stone or treasure seekers, or built on top of by newer people. Yes, we can get a lot from what we do find from before 8000 years back, but it's nothing compared to what's still down there. There should be nothing extraordinary about stone works shallow underwater now, because it would have been dry land for ~180,000 years of pre-history. Important and news-worthy, but not viewed like ancient aliens or other anachronisms.

Haplogroup R and it's subclads (R1, R1a, R1a1, R1a1a, ect) are the builders of civilization. This mutation occured either Iran or more likely in Siberia. Wherever this Haplogroup went civilization followed. I suggest making a video about them.
Elenchus_ 115 (2 months ago)
+Zingam To an extent. But in Eastern Europe, the R groups took women from J, J1, J2 which is an Asian haplogrop from the middle east. So it was more like they came out of the Alti and Ural mountains, went through Mongolia , China, and Eastern Europe into the middle east from Turkey and Iran. Then made their way across Asia to India. Only later would the R groups move along to Central and Western Europe coming through the Mediterranean through Turkey and modern day Ukraine.
Zingam (2 months ago)
These are the men! What about the women ;) From what I read the European woman were originated mostly from proto-European women. So basically the Indo-Europeans invaded Europe, killed the proto-European men took their proto-European women and thus the modern Europeans were created.
