Teaser Tuesdays: Guns, Germs & Steel

You spend ages looking around for an interesting meme and then two come along at once! Via Penny’s blog I found out about Teaser Tuesdays.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 😉

Sounds good to me, here goes this week’s

Early humans certainly didn’t fly by helicopter from Alaska to Meadowcroft and Monte Verde, skipping all the landscape in between. Advocates of pre-Clovis settlement suggest that, for thousands or even tens of thousands of years, pre-Clovis humans remained at low population densities or poorly visible archaeologically, for unknown reasons unprecedented elsewhere in the world.

And lovely Suse has honoured me with an award!  It has quite made my day.  Now it’s my turn to give out some awards, will have to think about that for  a bit ….

  1. Interesting. I really enjoyed the documentary that was made from this book a few years back. He makes some very intriguing connections. Nice teasers.

  2. Good teaser today!

  3. We’re all about Alaska week on Discovery – almost as good as Shark week! Sounds like I’d enjoy this one.
