Oldest house in Britain Discovered to be 11,500 Years Old
This very early date is important and more important is the existence of permanent housing. These people did not migrate at all and must have depended on the lake and forest for sustenance. This compares well to the Pacific Northwest. That culture is at least as old and surely similar.
Further work is needed to determine what they ate. I see no evidence of middens here but that may only mean they have not been identified at a nearby locale.
This is also a snapshot of all Europe then. We have Stone Age villages only only one thousand years after the Pleistocene Nonconformity. By general extension this gives us a minimum culture for all of Asia as well wherever conditions were appropriate.
There remains no evidence of anything larger then nor evidence of an organized polity except perhaps at Gobekli Tepe.
