Unearth the Astonishing Secrets of Darwin’s Children

Darwin’s Children – Chapter 1 & 2

Introduction (book available from ) – Darwin’s Children

The extract from the book ” Dawn of the Lost Civilisation” which highlights the critical role of trade in the growth of humanity during the post-Ice Age period when the melting glaciers transformed the landscape into a network of waterways. Boats became essential for transportation and trade, fostering the progress of societies through the exchange of goods and ideas. It challenges the common misinterpretation in archaeology regarding the influence of trade on human development and technological advancements, emphasizing its pivotal role in shaping the world we know today.

The book chapter (Darwin’s Children) is set fifty thousand years ago, a pivotal moment in human history unfolded with the onset of the second migration of the Homo species, marking a transformative chapter in human evolution. The first migration, nearly two million years ago, saw Homo Erectus venturing out of Africa, leaving sparse archaeological traces due to the vast time elapsed.

Approximately a quarter of a million years ago, the second migration unfolded as Homo Neanderthal ventured into central mainland Europe and Asia, stopping short of reaching China, America, or the Polar Regions. Fortunately, this migration left more evidence, as only fifty thousand years ago, Homo Sapiens encountered their ancient cousins on the shores of the Caspian Sea, nestled between Europe and Asia. This meeting resulted in crossbreeding, giving rise to a new species—Cro-Magnon.

The intermingling of the agile, dark-skinned Homo Sapiens and the robust, red-haired, green-eyed Neanderthals produced offspring with varied colourations. These individuals further interbred, contributing to the diverse hair and eye colours observed in contemporary humans through subsequent interbreeding with indigenous sapiens. Cro-Magnons emerged as a remarkable evolutionary branch of Homo Sapiens, boasting brains 15% larger than even modern humans. Physically superior, with an average height of 6’6″ and weighing about 300 lbs, they navigated the prehistoric world filled with wild animals using basic stone tools, unlike modern humans who rely on more sophisticated weapons and technology.

This hybrid humanoid inherited unique features that we take for granted today. One notable trait is the ability to swim—a skill not shared by earlier humanoid ancestors, including Homo Erectus and Homo Neanderthal. Unlike apes and monkeys, who would drown in water, Cro-Magnon’s possession of a layer of fat under the skin provided buoyancy. This evolutionary advantage made them the first boat builders in history, unencumbered by a natural fear of water.

The Cro-Magnons’ prowess in conquering the wild world of prehistory, coupled with their adaptability and innovations, underscores the significance of the second migration in shaping the trajectory of human evolution.

Robert John Langdon (2023) – Darwin’s Children

Langdon’s journey was marked by meticulous mapping and years of research, culminating in a hypothesis that would reshape our understanding of prehistoric Britain. He proposed that much of the British Isles had once been submerged in the aftermath of the last ice age, with these ancient sites strategically positioned along the ancient shorelines. His groundbreaking maps offered a fresh perspective, suggesting that Avebury had functioned as a bustling trading hub for our ancient ancestors. This audacious theory challenged the prevailing notion that prehistoric societies were isolated and disconnected, instead highlighting their sophistication in trade and commerce. (Darwin’s Children)

In the realm of historical discovery, it is often the audacious thinkers, the mavericks who dare to question established narratives, who propel our understanding forward. Robert John Langdon is undeniably one of these thinkers. With a deep passion for history and an unyielding commitment to his research, he has unearthed a hidden chapter in the story of Avebury—one that transcends the boundaries of time and offers fresh insights into our shared human history.

As Langdon’s trilogy, ‘The Stonehenge Enigma,’ continues to explore these groundbreaking theories, it beckons us to embark on a journey of discovery, to challenge our assumptions, and to embrace the possibility that the past is far more complex and interconnected than we ever imagined. Avebury, with its ancient stones and enigmatic avenues, continues to whisper its secrets to those who dare to listen, inviting us to see history through a new lens—one illuminated by the audacious vision of Robert John Langdon.
