    First time I tried the video was unavailable but just managed to view it.
    However it won't be changing my view on time as I'd seen something similar (and more English [​IMG]) comparing it to a day (Edit or was it a year?) and it was something like the most of what we call History would be in the final minutes/ secs before midnight!

    If you take the first use of tools as the start of humankind's 'journey', 99.6% of our history is the Palaeolithic, or Old Stone Age. Nomadic hunter-gatherers hunting, killing, butchering and eating animals to survive the various Ice Ages.

    Everything else happened after we got into farming during the Neolithic.

    KS2 teachers please take note, before you go storming headlong into the Bronze Age ;)

    Most secondary history is focused on the last 1000 years which is a pretty pathetically tight laser focus.

    And of course, it focuses overwhelmingly on the history of these Islands.
