The proof of my hypothesis can be found in many hundreds of small articles or clues found as 'throw away' pieces on the internet. The one that caught my eye this week in the national newspapers was "Mammoths DNA shows inbreeding". The problem with these populist headlines aimed at the general population, is that they are not as they seem.
Harvard Medical School geneticist Eleftheria Palkopoulou said the genomes indicated two major population crashes: one around 280,000 years ago from which the population recovered, and a second about 12,000 years ago, near the Ice Age's end, from which it did not.
After the second one, an estimated 300 to 1,000 mammoths survived. A small Wrangel Island population existed for about 6,000 years after all mainland mammoths had died. The inbreeding probably harmed the population's viability and contributed to its extinction, Dalén said.
|Small island in the middle of nowhere!|
|You could walk from the island to the mainland if you wished!|
For an answer to this, lets look at what happened the the woolly in America just after the ice age.
Big Love: Woolly Mammoths, Huge Elephants May Have Interbred
(Journal Genome Biology, May 2011)
So is it possible that the change of genomes in Eurasian Mammoths are actually down to cross-breeding rather than 'inbreeding'?
If so - how did the elephants get from Africa or/and Asia (more accurately the far east!!). Moreover, Elephant bones are found in Northern Europe (including Doggerland) as well as in America - sadly these bones are incorrectly dated not by carbon dating but by assumption (that well known Scientific technique!!)
So unless they got lost and walked to America or Britain, someone brought them from African if not India in a ship - So who are they?
Well what other prehistoric 'megalithic builders' do we know that sailed the four corners of the Earth just after the last Ice Age - The Cro-Magnons and this same sequence of animal usage and extinction is seen in Mammoths, Horses, Dogs and sabre toothed Tigers we will detail in our next book 'Dawn of the Lost Civilisation' out soon.
