While the written record is largelysilent on the role of the adze in human society, the archeologicalrecord is loquacious. Pictures 2, 3, 4, 5,and 6 show us in picture that the adze has been used, respectively, for making COMBS (and in NeolithicNubia, Mesopotamia, and India  they resembled the same comb being made in 2. JEWELRY virtually identical to that seen in [3] has been found in NeolithicTurkey         and China         and the adze has been found in that era of China [12,13]. The adze has been used to makeFURNITURE [5, 6]. Writing of NeolithicIndia, while I have presented no pictures,the text in cell 10 speaks of the adze being used to make dolmens and inother literature, it speaks of the adze inNeolithic India being used to make homes.The adze has been found throughout theanient world. To my incomplete know-ledge, one of its earliest appearances inhistory is in the form of a bone adze inBulgaria during its dolichochephalic stage.Grimes [10] notes it spread from NeolithicIndia to the Malays and 7, 8, and 9 showit is in Melanesia and the Pacific. In Asia,it appears in China [12, 13], Syria [14],Palestine [14]. In Europe, again, Bulgaria[15] and (where did he learn of it?) with the Iceman Otzi in Bronze-Age Italy [16]. Paul Marc Washington

Do the analogies in the pages below with their shared cultural toolkit reveal the existence of a single one worldwide culture with a seemingly common point of origin that through the demic movement of a people (like pursed-fingers parting) that became dispersed worldwide?
