There are bits and pieces of new cultures that are unearthed every now and then.... Few years ago they found a prehistoric town with artefacts such as inscriptions and tools in Northern Greece, that actually dated back to 5300 BC. Archaeology always turns everything upside down with every new site that is discovered.

That is for sure, just look at the recent stir concerning the earliest humans found in Israel.
