More from '1491'

More from Charles Mann's book "1491":

*The oldest city in the world could have been in Peru.
*Three-fifths of all the crops grown today in the world originated in South or Mesoamerica.

*With the discovery of the Monte Verde site in Southern Chile, which is approximately 30,000 years old, and the reflection that people only came to the island of Great Britain 12,500 years ago, (because it was covered in glaciers) why the heck is Europe called the "Old World"?
