"A string of coincidences -- one of my graduate students spotting the same colour sequences in the rugs and the necklaces. An associate recognising another necklace with a pattern similar to ones she'd found in Spain. And, critically, the Neanderthal bead rug that could've languished forever in that basement in Prague if it wasn't for the 2012 floods. Without these, we'd never have started looking for commonalities in what we'd previously disregarded as simple craft".

I've got a new Upsideclown up today: Packet Loss.

(Admittedly I've taken more than the usual liberties in this piece. The Neanderthal people were roaming hunter-gatherers rather than village-dwellers. And although it's thought that they did mass-produce beads (and trade them?), the rest is fiction.)
