Summary: With the disappearance of the Neanderthal species some 25,000 years ago, Homo sapiens reigned supreme across Eurasia - but the human family was still dramatically in flux. This film depicts the cultural adaptations and far-flung migrations that continued to shape European societies from the end of the Ice Age through the development of agriculture to the invention of writing. Viewers learn about the major role of Middle Eastern diasporas in the settlement of Greece, Italy, Spain, and central Europe; the domestication of animals and grain plants; the increase in social division and conflict as demonstrated in early weapons, defensive walls, and burial objects; and more.
