Well...when is present?[edit]

BP..before present...that doesn't seem very helpful, we dont know when "present" is? I have never seen this dating method before, could someone emlighten me? Ciriii 15:12, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Before Present is 1950 AD. Mhocker 14:45, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Can anyone explain to me how to edit the caption to a photo? The caption to one photo on this page, "Burins to the Gravettian culture" isn't English, but I can work out how to get access to it to correct it.

And incidentally, is there a page somewhere which explains in English and not in code how to add/donate a photo to a particular page, because despite hours spent wandering around Wikipedia looking for this, I can't find it.

Very, very true! These intelligent users seem completely unaware of the ambiguous nature of "BP" if used without the due specifications! And moreover, someone inserting the "(c. 32,000–22,000 ya)" obviously was unaware of the dates gien in the introduction. This is simply CRUELLY poor work!!! Find more dates in other wikis!!

User:HJJHolm, that's a really old post you're replying to. I agree that a lot of editors don't understand and misuse BP and I correct them when I can. But I'm not sure what you mean "find more dates in other wikis", we should only use academic sources for articles such as this one. In almost all cases other 'wikis' aren't considered to meet our criteria for sources at WP:VERIFY and WP:RS. Doug Weller talk 12:25, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Is it really necessary to include information about some pendant from Romania into the main text? Isn't it some advertisement?[edit]

In August 2013, Romanian archaeologists found a 20,000-year-old Gravettian pendant at the Paleolithic site of Poiana Ciresului (English: 'Cherry Glade'), near Piatra Neamț, in eastern Romania.[1] The newly discovered objects will be included in the Paleolithic artifacts collection of the Târgoviște History Museum, in the new section of human evolution. The department will open at "Stelea" Galleries with the support of the Dâmboviţa County Council. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Centrum99 (talkcontribs) 20:47, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

I was wondering the same thing yesterday. I took it out. We know a great deal about this culture (this article ought to be expanded), and that pendant is not exceptional (as far as I know). Nicolas Perrault (talk) 10:22, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Seems reasonable. Doug Weller talk 14:40, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
