If you expect pronunciation to be exactly right pretty much every language pre recorded sound is gone forever. Having a workable alphabet for so long helps a lot though.

The oldest family member I knew from oral history was that my great-great grandpa was a German construction worker who died after ending up impaled crotch-to-sternum in a horrific work accident.
I did the whole Ancestry DNA test and free records access trial, and I was able to find out that I was descended from Byzantine nobility, various Capet kings of France, and Charlemagne. But then again, so could just about every single western European house of minor nobility by the 1500s or so.

Who is most human but the greatest of us?
Know yourself and find ourselves the greatest of us. Even to know what you claim makes you better and thereby obligated to generate from your seed. To leave the world to the billions of idiots is to move billions of future souls into only worse suffering. All who can improve world should breed, because the unruly masses will never embrace anti-natalism. Thus in your act of "mercy" to your unborn children you doom the world.

all of these are west-centric.

In the Far East, Southeast Asia, Mesoamerica, and the Andes, these periodizations would make no sense given they had far more relevant local milestones.

the only actual ideal peridiization would to have seperate milestones for each civilizational sphere which then unifies around the 16th century or so, which is when Europe actually achieves lasting global influence
>>
>>6834544
That's not true. China's wealthiest regions managed to keep up with England until the mid-18th century.
>>
>>6835015
Yeah but the problem is that you cannot even fit Mesoamerica and the Andes together.
From population and technology, the mesoamerican Classical Period is similar to the eurasian Bronze Age. Both periods also ended with a collapse. So that the Post-Classic is much like the Iron Age, with the Aztecs being on the rise to become something like Rome.

Humbug. The US supported the Baath guys just for not being communists. All in the spirit of the time. Not being a declared vassal of the US does not automatically mean Moscow is involved.

If you had a shield, then you usually traded in some of your armor to reduce weight, right? What pieces were usually considered less important? The helmet you would probably want to keep for sure, but what about the rest? What are your priorities?

He's a brainlet who seriously indulged whether English was a romance language, and left it as an open question.
It's like basic linguistics that what defines a language is the 'common speech' and its syntax (which is almost entirely Old English and Norse mixed). Having a bunch of romance words is irrelevant, since then Swedish would be a Romance language (we have almost the same amount of romance borrowings, proportionately.)
