I am somewhat dubious of his description of hunting and gathering peoples, which ignores the fact that in some areas where the food supply was good they did pretty much stay in one place, and which also gives the impression that ancient humans wandered entirely at random rather than moving through known territories at various times of year.

But I'm about to be distracted from considering this further by the need to go pat a cat. Or more likely several cats.
