Archaeology homework question, please help ?
I’ve been on this question for hours! I don’t know what to say ):
“For how much of human history does writing not appear, before Sumerian cuneiform? Relate your answer As a percentage of time from the emergence of Homo sapiens. This is the amount of time in which archaeology is the only way to study humans.”

Here's a brief history of the world:
Fallen angels originally had bodies of their own. They made love to the daughters of men and had children by them. These half-breeds were known as the Nephilim. They were giants. Heroes. Men of renown. People sacrifed their children to them at places like Stonehenge. They were pure evil... a good part of the reason why God flooded the world.
Eight people survived the flood 4500 years ago.
One hundred years later, their offspring directly disobeyed orders to disperse and instead came together to build the Tower of Babel.
"Nothing will be impossible for them." God said...
So to slow technology (so we wouldn't kill ourselves off) He mixed up their languages and scattered them - also dividing the land. Gen. 10:25 and 11:8-9
I mean - can you imagine? Electricity has always existed... we just recently learned how to harness it. What would have happened if the ancient Egyptians had that power?
The people were scattered throughout the world - and we are all descendants of them.
They took the stories of God, creation, the pre-flood people and world, and the stories of the flood with them.
The Chinese word for 'boat' contains the number 8 for the 8 people that were on the ark. There are stories about these events found in every ancient culture around the world (230 at last count).
The pyramids found all over the world are replicas of the tower of Babel.
Go to Google earth and search 'Tower of Babel'... the site is still there. Then Google 'Noah's Ark TURKEY'... a tourist attraction since the 70's.
Then Google 'POLYSTRATE fossils'....
Trees that were buried upright during the flood.
Minerals entered the tissues of plants and animals after burial in mud; under the forces of extreme pressure - everything fossilized and became stone.
The only reason why fossils even exist is because of the worldwide flood.

Modern humans have been around for 200,000 years. Cuneiform was 5,000 years ago. 97.5 percent.

Modern humans appeared 30 thousands years BC (plus 2 thousands up to nowadays). The oldest civilization appeared roughly 5 thousands years BC (plus 2 thousands up to nowadays). Then: 7/32*100 is 21.875 percent.

The time of emergence of homo sapiens hasn't truly known, so the question is faulty and unanswerable.
