For the first time ever there is proof that pre-historic people placed bunches of flowers in the grave when they buried their dead, experts have said. Archaeologists have discovered a bunch of meadowsweet blossoms in a Bronze Age grave at Forteviot, south of Perth. The find is reported in the journal "British Archaeology", out this week.

Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt are part of the Bronze Age. They knew about agriculture, mathematics, and astronomy. They weren't exactly primitive in this period. So why would their emotions be any different to ours when it comes to remembering a loved one? 4000 years ago is considered our near past in the evolutionary chain.

I agree. There is nothing different about peoples feelings and emotions then or now.

For some odd reasons, culture has to come from the Middle East, therefore the Celt, the Tene Culture people have to be considered as barbarians by academia.. truth coming out?
