We are carried back directly to the blood sacrifices of the heliolithic stage in human culture.
The two settlements may have been quite independent, arising separately out of the widely diffused heliolithic Neolithic culture.
Eliot Smith and Rivers have used the term “heliolithic culture” for the culture of these first agricultural peoples.
But it was the heliolithic culture still at a very lowly stage and probably before the use of metals.
The Semitic nomads of the Arabian desert seem also to have had a heliolithic stage.
As a result he assumes the existence of an early cultural movement, for which the descriptive title "heliolithic" has been coined.
