    True, in the sense that all extant languages have been evolving for the same length of time. In the same way, no living species can be called older than another because all have been evolving for the...

    100% European probably means that 500 years ago your ancestors were living in Europe. Most DNA companies base their ethnic categories on places of ancestral origin prior to the era of European...

    Thanks for this. I interpreted the paper as saying that the tree is actually less muddied now because their comparative study of hand morphology showed that early hominin hands were more similar to...

    It's strange that an academic paper would cite Thor Heyerdahl as an authority. To quote from his Wikipedia page:

    Thanks Angela for posting those other pieces by Albinoni. Even leaving aside the disputed adagio, Albinoni deserves to be on any list of baroque composers.

    The "Adagio in G Minor" is a glorious piece, but the modern consensus is that it's not by Albinoni, even though many recordings attribute it to Albinoni.

    This study adds to the aDNA studies that have settled the debate between the "express train" and "slow boat" models of the settlement of Remote Oceania. It is now clear that the first settlers, the...

    How large do you think the population of Britain was in the 3rd millennium BC? The estimate of demographers is that the population of the British Isles increased from around 25,000 people in 3000 BC...

    I agree. I voted Other and I specify Galileo. There were other Italians who contributed to science, but Galileo is arguably a primary founder of science as we know it. Not just Western science, since...

    The neolithic people of England would probably have had enough trading contact with continental Europe in 2500 B.C. to know that some major transformations were happening on the continent as Corded...

    I'm glad to see my favourite brand, Whittaker's of New Zealand, is on your list. They are Rain Forest Alliance Certified. I recommend their 92% cocoa Ghana if you want a low sugar dark chocolate.

    Yes, both Jerrais and Jersey English (a dialect of English) are sadly in decline. My great-grandfather would have grown up with both in the 19th century. His mother was born in the Breton speaking...

    I find this interesting, since my great-grandfather was born in Jersey. However, I wouldn't say this artwork was British. For historical reasons within the last 1,000 years, Jersey belongs to the UK,...

    In 2017 I had a DNA test with 23andMe. My Y haplogroup result was R1b-L21. Since I had already traced my paternal line ancestry back to Ireland in the mid-18th century, that result was not much of a...

    I agree. Shakespeare was a magician of the English language. He wove spells that will continue to enchant "as long as men can breathe or eyes can see".

    Shakespeare's genius

    Shakespeare's genius lay for comedy and humour. In tragedy he appears quite out of his element.
