I am wondering that question now.
We’ve got the Children of Israel coming out of Egypt circa 1600 BC. We’ve got Elijah and Elisha circa 800 BC.
Here’s a story from the BBC about a site that has been in use supposedly since 2000 BC.
I’ve never thought of the rest of the world being that well settled. Though I guess I should. I’ve always thought Joseph’s coat of many colors, 2000 BC, came on the silk road and was an embroidered kimono.
