This is something I want to get round to discussing at some point, but it's technical and is going to take some time to lay out. I'm keeping tabs on a bunch of specialists to see what their analysis is too, but so far, this has made more noise in the public press than in anthropological circles. I don't know why - it seems pretty important!
