Well, extrapolating the graph, looks like the obliquity was somewhere between 24.0 and 24.1 degrees.

Thanks, Brian. I do see the ice age coastlines of the Guinea region of west Africa and of Brazil near the Amazon Delta had a reasonable amount of lost land, making the distance needed for intrepid early navigation even shorter!

I can't help looking at the Carolina Bays and comparing with that elliptical shaped site at Watson Brake, revealed by Lidar scanning. Could it be that Watson Brake is a natural feature? Or.... could it be that the Carolina Bays are artificial?

Actually, now I'm on my second read, my biggest gripe is Graham's location for the Lost Civilization right up close to the Ice Cap. It would have been a little cold up there, with only tundra and no grasslands or forest for sustenance. How about the four major areas of America that were lost to the floods released by the melting ice cap? Using a ball-park 100 metre sea-level rise, the areas (m

Hi Brian, Thanks for that! I do favour Sundaland as the location for the LC, but I can't help thinking that a journey Africa to South America could have been undertaken by some human population (sapiens or archaic) at some date in the remote past. I only got this idea in the last few weeks!

Not sure about Luzia, as recent DNA studies show her to be "native American", but you raise a good point re. Poon Lim!

Let me make this clear - IANAA: I am not an archaeologist. Also, IANAA: I am not an astronomer. Also, IANAAA: I am not an archaeoastronomer, either! America Before is a fantastic book regarding the bringing to our attention the ancient archaeological sites in N and S America, that much is certain. Graham is a wonderful writer, able to explain and describe things clearly and succinctly, and wit

Roughly 200 pages into America Before. Went to Graham's talk at Logan Hall in London a week ago, got my copy signed! This is a very well-written book, but one thing struck me looking at the map with the Denisovan DNA "blobs" in the Andamans, New Guinea, Australia and South America - if you place Africa in the middle, you will see that it stands sort of halfway between the Americas and A

Furthermore, at dawn on the summer solstice in 9600 BC, Sirius was setting at Gobekli Tepe's latitude.

Which constellation contained the Sun on the Summer Solstice back in 9600 BC? It was Scorpius, as in the modern Scorpius that we recognise today!

Graham used Stellarium a lot in "Magicians". I've downloaded it, but noticed that the dates of the equinoxes and solstices shift by approximately two months. For example, the summer solstice is currently 20th or 21st June, but in 9600 BCE, the solstice in Stellarium is 1st September. I know it must be the solstice at that date, because I can see the maximum elevation of the sun above

My understanding from "Magicians" is that the civilisation was already around at the start of the Younger Dryas. Consider Gunung Padang in Indonesia, which is thought to pre-date the YD by thousands of years! regards, Sunil
