Ice-free Arctic 7,000 years ago?


That is
what a team from the Geological Survey of Norway thinks: they have found estabilished ancient beaches dating 6-7,000 years ago that they believe would be impossible to form is the Arctic was not largely ice free. They relate this warm epysode to the expansion of early Arctic cultures in North America.

Minus 50 degrees! inconceivable is the word.

There are some things about Basque marrage practices I was wondering about, if you have the time the questions are in my comment at the relevant post-
Polygynic bias in reproduction...but how?.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, a very good response , unfortunately I didn't give your actual post the attention it deserved in posing the questions. If you go to "Polygenic bias in reproduction.... but how?" I have left a further comment speculating on its implications , any remarks you have will be very welcome.
