"Evidence of permanent settlement dates from the 7th millennium BC in Bulgaria, Romania, and Greece."?[edit]

I was wondering if anyone had any source or reference for this statement, or the names of the sites. 67.84.102.44 (talk) 06:56, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

"It is has been shown that the Aurignacian peoples were carriers of an early haplotype R1 y-chromosome..."[edit]

Author please cite research substantiating this factoid (needs to be deleted if non-substantiated). Foosayer (talk) 16:10, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

seems unlikely. Haplogroup R itself dates to the end of the Aurignacian. R1 would be post-Aurignacian. Delete with prejudice. dab (𒁳) 18:07, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

End date in the lede[edit]

"It extends from the introduction of stone tools by hominids 1.8 million years ago, to the introduction of agriculture and the end of the Pleistocene around 12,000 BP." - The trouble is that the introduction of any true agriculture, as opposed to gathering wild berries, fruits and roots, happened several millennia after the end of the ice age, and of course at different dates in different parts of the continent. Roughly between 8.000 and 5.500 BP. The opening needs to bring out this wide discrepancy in dates and (preferably) remove the idea that the end of the ice age coincided with the end of the paleolithic. 83.254.151.33 (talk) 11:26, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
