That European origins doc covers what is old archaeology, from 2012 and 2017. We're talking about less than a handful of finds and no idea how they got there. Multiple points of separate evolution is a stretch enough, but this hypothesis is nothing like a challenge to African origins of homo sapiens. It excites the Herrenvolk though.

Es gibt viele wertige Dinge gesehen zu werden auf Arte (ich schaue es mir ziemlich oft an, hauptsächlich in französischer Sprache), aber es ist auch nicht immun gegen Quacksalberei.

Have you seen "Deutschland von oben"? Very interesting documentary on society and history.

I'd never heard of "Deutschland von oben" before. I watched part of an episode, and the photography and graphics are stunning. I find the backround music mildly annoying, but the camera work is so superb and the subject material so interesting, I've decided to watch all four seasons from the beginning. Outstanding recommendation. Thank you.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.
