Only trouble is, they grew into the culture that gave us probably the earliest and biggest example of the Roman Road/Autobahn/Motorway - namely the Spice Road!

"...motorway services were the new cities..."

Not sure whether they were responsible for the Spice Road (and the subsequent Posh Lay By, Scary Junction, Sporty Contra-flow and Baby Slip Road: The Ginger Roundabout got built over), or they lived in the area it was built through.

Maybe they staged a pointy-hat protest when the builders moved in?!

The photos I saw when those dudes were discovered showed half-decomposing bodies of european descent, with... you said it! conical hats! which freaked me out of my mind for days on end - the noble savage, no way! the nagging freak! straight-thinking road-bound rednecked greedy planks have always been the scourge of this planet

noooow I know where the minstrel you mention got his inspiration from for his 20 mothers-era looks

Anyone checked out "Lost Civilisations of the Stone Age" by Richard Rudgley? It gives loads of examples of how ancient folks were far, far more intelligent than we give 'em credit for. He mentions Stalactites & Stalagmites being used to make music & bits of bone as percussive 'rasps' & 'scrapers' - this going way,way back in time.
Yeah! Groovy!
