"Noah’s Flood" May Have Triggered European Farming
Such a flood could have been caused by the melting about 8,000 years ago of a gigantic ice sheet that once covered most of North America.
The deluge may have also contributed to an explosion in European agriculture?especially throughout inland regions near the Black Sea, where farms were previously scarce, the researchers found.
約8000年前に北アメリカ大陸の氷が融けて、黒海などの水位が上昇、農業に適した環境を作るのに役立ったと。
ちなみに、こうした氷河期の終わりに伴う洪水がノアの箱舟伝説につながったとも言われている。
