The development of European antiquity has been progressing. One of the things that I have noticed, looking at Wikipedia and other sources that I used, is that there is still enough difference of opinion among scholars who study European prehistory to cause some confusion. Different authorities who write about different nations tend to have different emphases, so it is going to cause some difficulty to create a general European time line. Part of the difficulty is that I have a limited set of nations to work with, and there are considerable gaps. Another is that the study of nations isn't very fine-grained: different parts of the same modern nation may have had very different bronze age cultures, so that a map of peoples in antiquity looks quite different from a modern one.  However, the confusion of the opinions among experts is real enough that a sketch of this period has to be somewhat tentative.


I'm starting to finish up the connection of nations back to classical and medieval time periods, and as I do so, the need to connect social structure and change to nations is coming up. I have more or less set this aside for some time, because I wasn't quite sure what to do with it, and as a result its development is behind where I think it ought to be.  I've been anxious to get on to the development of religion and government, but...not quite yet.
