10,000 BC

Postby Henri De Ceredigion » Mon Feb 02, 2015 11:07 pm

This programme has been hyped on Channel Five as part of it's coverage of Celebrity Big Brother and has just started on the channel and in the preamble to the programme a stone age archaeologist (Klint Janulis) stated "This is a Stone Age survival experiment" adding that it was also a social experiment. The programme has chosen 10,000BC as that marks the starting point of agriculture. I shall be watching the programme and will no doubt be asking lots of questions as well as reviewing it but would like to know first off "What was Europe like in 10,000BC (especially Bulgaria where the programme is being filmed)?"

I highly recommend following the #Real10000BC twitter feed at the moment for an insight into actual conditions and archaeology 12,000 years ago ;)

I am beginning to agree with you Sally. I don't know that much about the Stone Age but only half of what I have seen tallies with what I know.

My favourite was the guy who sh@t near the camp and when he was caught out he pointed to the sh1t and said "I may have done that bit... but not those bits" Genius! :crazy:

Apart from that, a valuable insight into how people from 21st Century society cope in the wilderness... and how they don't!
