Those "Oh So Early Warriors of the Sea"

You know we all seem to "not realize" in our modern computer world that even early man had to "have it altogether" as we say in our day. They had to provide for their familes as we do to compare..."Yes" they may have had to do it with much fewer "bells and whisles" but still they had to do it. So...early man he used the 'sea' and his 'ships' as well as we are using, to help provide for all things that make life comfortable in our life, as well as his.

The 'key' word here is 'ships'...before early man could get his buns from point "A" to point "B"...ships needed to be designed and bult....

So...lets for example talk a bit about the Greeks. The Greeks traded to and from colonial settlements which they set up in Italy, Sicily, southern France, North Africa and the Black Sea. Now this last colony is most interesting in our example...not only was its wheat producing area, which supplied most of the homeland of Greece, but there was 'gold' in the rivers.

The method of extracting the gold from the fast moving rivers was to pin down sheepskins on the river beds to catch the rains of gold that was washed down by the currents. And here my fellow readers we find the basis of legend of the Golden Fleece, the Argonauts and their ship , "Argo."
