Agriculture was not an invention but was the result of the over-hunting of certain plant-prey species. The fertile crescent is a myth- the various new culture elements called civilization were an eco-adaptation to the dry infertility of southern Mesopotamia. The class system did not come to England from the Mediterranean, but rather overland, via the Scythians and the Celts, and it was imposed on Celtic peasants in a place where it was utterly inappropriate, given their their moist and cold biome. Many of the characteristics associated with Anglo culture are most correctly understood as being the logical consequence of adaptations that were effective in the place of origin but completely ill-suited in the distant and very different place to which those adaptations diffused.

The new story is one of livelihood adaptation by human groups, and the disruptive effervescence of the contemporary English-speaking world is logically and clearly explained from this new perspective. Whether or not the Anglo way of life that relies on livelihood invention,or creating for oneself a way to make a living, can ever lead to biome adaptation and generational stability is the question that underlies this exploration of how the latest discoveries in archaeology, ancient history, soil science, botany, and other fields all cross-connect to tell a very different story of the origin and the nature of Anglo-weirdness.
