Note I did not use the term "advanced civilization" and in context is to mean of a level akin to what is seen at Gobekli Tepe or other megalithic qualifiers prior to the advent of recorded history c. 3500BC.

It can't stop there because of the likelihood at least the GT culture existed prior to that, but by no means is this to imply an open end beyond the rise of modern humans (Cro-Magnon) c. 40,000BP.
