    It would have been a scary sight as 100s of naked men came out out the sea at dover with copper knifes in their teeth and a beaker swimming cap.

    Joking aside, the only people capable of arriving on islands would need to have had some sort of tradition of boats themselves or even have been deliberately sought and transported across. I

    Well, if they came early enough, no boat would be needed. Of course, I voted for Beaker Men from the Continent who were already L21+, so, yeah, by boat (or water wings).

    They could have constructed a massive bow and fired people half of the way to save part of the swim.

    I think thin copper sheet boats would have been very picturesque and I would definately include them in a fantasy film about it.

    I notice two people have voted for Neolithic Farmers from the Continent who were already L21+. I am interested in why they voted that way. I was hoping to get some discussion of the origin of L21 started, just for fun.

    The question is how old is L21. I've seen TMRCA calculations pointing at between 2000BC and 1800BC. The question is did it immediately spread around that period or was it bottled up for couple hundred years before saying spreading during the "Atlantic Bronze Age" period (1300-700BC)

    Yes, and those age estimates have considerable margins of error, so L21 could be a couple of thousand years older. It doesn't seem likely that it is much younger.
