There is so much we don’t know about pre-historic civilizations… like, what their names were, their language and how they ended.

One thing seems to happen repeatedly in our quest for understanding, however – we discover that we do not credit these ancient people with the knowledge and abilities that they in fact held.

For example, recent findings suggest that Stonehenge, as a cultural location, was occupied as early as 7,5000 BCE, which is 5,000 years sooner than experts knew of. That’s almost 10,000 years ago, which is about the time people are thought to have really started using agriculture as a way of life.

Can you even imagine what a world without farming would be like? The radically different mindset these folks had? Wild.

Read more about the findings here, and never underestimate what your earliest ancestors were capable of.
