Semi-protected edit request on 17 November 2014[edit]

Hi Dougweller, unfortunately, the phrase has not been translated in its exactly original meaning. Therefore the phrase: "Without any doubt, they represent the product of a Culture that captured the irradiation center of absolute positive energy in the Universe." must be read, as in Italian version: "Without any doubt, they represent the product of a Culture that identified the Universe as the centre of irradiation of absolute positive energy." As for the rest of the paragraph, around "a unified culture", I think, actually, that it is a "Unified culture", which adapted in region, in the wake of the Neolithic "megalithic missionaries" suggested by V.Gordon Childe on "The Prehistory of European Society". Thanks. (talk) 09:52, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Also, you seem to want help from a specific editor in which I see there has been discussion above. I'm sure that Doug would be happy to help you once a consensus has been achieved. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 16:55, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. "Megalithic missionaries is an obsolete concept. Eg [1] "While no professional archaeologist today thinks in terms of “megalithic missionaries’* or embraces diffusionist beliefs, most are in agreement that the remarkable phenomenon of the megalithic burial tradition rests heavily on the networks of exchange and communication that facilitated the spread of ideas." (Barry Cunliffe ). Radio-carbon dating put paid to Childe's idea. The other bit, a centre of irradiation etc still doesn't make much sense to me and looks positively New Age - what other archaeologists argur for this?. Dougweller (talk) 17:07, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
