    One of the most interesting things I've recently found is that in theory society and civilisation as we know it has only occured within the past 5,000 years. Before then pretty much huts.

    Yet there are more and more things discovered that make hisorians and scientists look at each other and say "Well... bugger." Examples of human crafstmanship has been dated as old as 25,000 years old! Truly ancient, and enough for civilisation to rise and fall perhaps up to four times!

    Which brings up interesting possibilities, what could cause such a fall afterall? If such a thing occured, naturally. Animal populations are often shown as cyclic which human influence of artificial involvement with the flora and fauna causing unusual deviation, plausibly then as the human population spirals and the native wildlife is affected adversely - not all things are accountable for and it would take relatively little to knock an expected equilibrium beyond satisfying means. For example, a worldwide boom of insect life could cause near global famine, affecting health of human and mammlian populations as a result.

    Diseases nowadays show remarkeable resiliance to modern medicine, it is possible that perhaps this was faced before, reducing a population that had unknowingly engineered its own demise.

    The possibilities are as enrapturing as they are near frightening. So many post apocalyptic games are set far in the future, but how many could occur centuries in the past? What system would their years follow? Would there still be Anno Domini if the nature of the human population is truly cyclic? Perhaps delicate twists in the evolution of a timeline can be so seemingly unimportant yet be a core difference between one era of human development than the current one, or the next one.
