300,000 6000-year-old weapons unearthed in Germany

FTFY.

Wait until they find those 500,000 year old pulse rifles

That's a lot of year-old weapons.

The Proto-Reich?

They need to use those tools to hunt deer and fight off wolves. They also should pick berries.

Then once they gather enough food, they can mine Gold and Stone; chop wood and then upgrade their town center to level 2. Then they'll have more advanced weaponry available from the barracks.

Originally this species was believed to be more ape-like but it was found an elderly lady from Spain made the reconstructions.

Have you not read the Protocols of the Elders of Homo Sapiens? They are planning on taking over the world!

My white ancestors are from that region. Tales handed down say our orignal Black Forest tribe was very tall, very muscular and very hairy. And that was just the ladies.

Eh, I'm still looking for an old phased plasma rifle. Preferably in the 40w range.

Actually its better to spawn a couple extra workers before tackling the barracks, though you leave yourself open for a 1-3 man rush...you can pump out more if they start attacking you.

The scientists say Schöningen is an exciting location and global reference point not just for archaeology, but also for quaternary ecology and climate research.

Could some smart Farker explain the bolded in layman's terms? I Googled and Wikipedia'd and am still left puzzling out this term.

Thanking you in advance.

Just what you see in the ground, pal.

I'm guessing they are looking at the flora embedded within the brown coal (a new term to me) to make assessments of the environment during the period known as Quaternary.

As far as I can tell, homo sapiens are much later than them, especially in Europe.

The last neantertals only died out 12.000 years ago in Europe btw. (though they're a different evolutionary tree than homo sapiens).

I think you're confusing Neanderthals and Hobbits of Flores. Last traces of Neanderthals are 25.000 years old


As for timetable chimps use spears and there are (disputed?) traces of controlled fire 1.800.000 years ago
