Is this a logic problem for the home schooled children: spot the inconsistencies in the dates? They just don't hang together. For instance, it claims the writing was invented 400 years before there was any trace of language; the first trace of civilisation was in 3000 B.C., but there are traces of the Mesopotamian civilisation in 3500 B.C., even though there was only one family in 3300 B.C. and so on. Incidentally, how was the age of the cuneiform tablet determined? [[User:Aloysius|Aloysius]] 08:22, 30 April 2007 (EDT)
 
==Ancient Chinese Culture==
 
I wasn't sure how the format of this class was going to address ancient cultures not basd in Mesopotamia, but I wanted to provide a link to this site under the Metropolitan Museum in NYC, which discusses early Chinese cultures making objects like flutes circa 7000–5700 B.C.: [http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/jiah/hd_jiah.htm] --[[User:DinsdaleP|DinsdaleP]] 18:01, 17 January 2009 (EST)
