Good point, Nachiket.

Hi Ben,

Enjoyed your article and also read through your responses to questions and comments. Here’s another for you, if you’d be so kind as to consider an answer:

Is the above chart accurate back to prehistory, prior to 500 BC, e.g. where are the Phoenicians, biblical Caananites and proto-Hebrew tribes of the Levant… the Toltec as well as the Olmec in Mesoamerica, etc.? Is there another chart you’ve found that brings such primitive eras to light, which to me is where humanity’s evolutionary cultural origins are most comparatively interesting, and with a chronological global timeline, or is this the best there is?

Cheers and thanks in advance for your response.
