ARCHAEOLOGY GRADUALLY CONFIRMING ISHMAEL'S SPREAD-OF-AGRICULTURE THEORY

Czech archaeologist Radomir Tichy and his students recently added one more strand of evidence to an extraordinary story that archaeologists have been piecing together over the past decade or so. Beginning around 9,000 years ago, Europe was transformed by a radically new way of life: agriculture. In some places, archaeologists think it spread slowly, by example and trade; in others, it moved faster, borne by migrating farmers themselves. Along the southern shores of Europe, from Greece to Portugal, it may have traveled fastest of all: by sea.
