When DNA is involved in historical and archaeological research, the perception of time and space totally changes. Compared to the pace of mutations in mitochondrial DNA, the pace of human migrations is so fast that the researcher must change the time and space scales to better understand his studied populations. Suddenly, artefacts, spears and jewels become details, heroes and hordes become ants rushing, adapting to infinite situations. This paper is an attempt to reconstruct the entire history of Indo Europeans in a long lasting historical continuum that begins during the maximal glacial period and ends during the Great Migrations of Late Antiquity. This reconstruction is paced by founding events that we have reconstituted with high accurate details. Thanks to several historical sources that we have considered to be part of a common core from which each have diverged, we have been able to describe with a high definition the human societies that have survived in Lesser Caucasus and western Iran during the last Maximum Glacial, thanks to an African-Asian hydrological knowledge, the Shulaveri-Shomu culture, the transition between Neolithic and Bronze age in Lesser Caucasus marked by the rise of the nomads installed

at the center of a pendular
migrationís road
which linked India to Scandinavia. After a global re-analysis of the Icelandic poetry, we have demonstrated that the Edda was in fact an ocular testimony which has started to be recorded during a warming period that has marked the end of the glacial period in Lesser Caucasus and a regression of the Caspian Sea. Compiled and transcripted by Snorri Sturluson, frozen in time in a remote region free of radical changes, this testimony is the longest and the best preserved one that Lesser Caucasian women have broadcasted. These latter that we have identified to be from the H2a1 MtDNA lineage, who started to migrate during the impulse triggered by nomads in Eneolithic period toward Egypt, Jutland, India, Urals and northwestern Iberian Peninsula, each time broadcasted a contemporaneous versions. This universal testimony is the demonstration of an early already globalized world where remote regions were linked by a nomadic military- merchant caste of Transcaucasian origin, linked to India by the prehistoric African-Asian hydrological knowledge that was the base of a universal vocabulary. Discoveries made during this global reconstruction complete modern archaeological, historical and genetics researches and open new perspectives. They upset the commonly accepted representations of prehistoric and antic human societies, making an ocular testimony that depicts human cultures, places, landscapes and events the most precise historical source ever transmitted. They enrich our knowledge about what could have been the attachment of migrants to their homeland, to their common history and what they expected from the back and forth of these nomadic military-merchants from whom they descended, impacting our perception of ancient religions and the European ethnogenesis
process. Finally, this paper alerts us about our capacity of oblivion and reveals the reality of our own modernity. "
