Sweet comet o' doom?

10900 BC, the Northern Hemisphere weather changed, abruptly. The Ice Age returned to Europe and North America with a vengeance, pushing Dryas plants - that is, tundra - back into midlatitudes. This was, by my count, seventy-five centuries before the first intelligible hieroglyph that wasn't a receipt for four loaves of bread.

There might be a contemporary record of this. Göbekli Tepe sports a temple of sorts, with a lot of strange pictographs in bas-relief. These can be interpreted as zodiacal signs of 11000ish BC, if one assumes the nonzodiacal signs refer to scenes of violence and death. As might happen if the climate abruptly changes.

Or... they could be wrong. Revisited here.
