    Post IE language speculations

    Some interesting info and speculation on the IE Urheimat, and also evolution of cultures and languages in Eurasia can be found here.

    http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb....ow/lmusing.htm

    One very interesting quote:"Ancient human cultural innovations diffused throughout the world rapidly. Although trying to relate these innovations to specific linguistic impulses (e.g., Cauco-Sinitic = Magdalenian tools; Austro-Asiatic = bronze smelting; Eurasiatic = domestication of wolf; Indo-European = domestication of horse) may be unreliable and oversimplified, the linguistic associations do provide tantalizing clues about some of the details."

    Very interesting... see my wolf thread from a few weeks ago.

    I am personally skeptical about IE topics and believe them pockmarked full of holes. It was an upper class overtaking of the natives cultures, but not always a shift in leadership, but sometimes soft money lent the developments.
