The paintings found in the cave on the Scottish Island of Skye are said to date back to 33,000 years ago. However, the northern part of the British Isles was covered with the icecap of the Würm glaciation at that time. However, Cro-Magnons (the first early modern humans) are believed to have been present in the regions of what would become the British Isles around that time, and depopulation of the region did not occur until around 23,000 years ago.

Severian's GIFT-BEARER Fan-Edit [variant by v1ct0rth3cl34n3r] - Runtime 2:18:00 Altered beginning as from Severian's cut, single self-sacrifice of Engineer but altered end section from Severian's cut, mostly audio (in the escape pod when (spoiler) Noomi Rapace is kicking the Engineer all over the place which included profanity and violence that would have breached the certificate. Initially planned to commence with the Weyland/Yutani advert for DAVID, the lack of which, quoted directly, was omitted thusly: "This is the only scene that isn't included which i did want to include but it would've made for a couple of dozen hours work [mastering] which i wasn't really up for" See more »
Ridley Scott restores his Alien Legacy with the discovery of the origins of Mankind
WOW. This film was a breath of fresh air and a great restoration of the Alien universe. The franchise took an early hit in its line of succession with Alien 3, 4, and then somebody had a bright idea of mixing it with Fox's dead franchise, Predator. Well, we know how that went.
Anyway, Prometheus was over hyped and there was a lot of "oh it's a prequel, oh it's not a prequel" talk leading up to its release. Well, I saw the film opening night and I was amazed at how stunning the film was and how philosophical, spiritual, adventurous, captivating the story was. I just recently watched again on bluray and the film is very layered and complex than most people believe. The characters are well developed and have depth. The film is actually both a prequel but not at the same time. It has the same DNA as Alien and it doesn't really connect until the last 30mints but then it doesn't. Confused? Well, that's why you should checkout this syfy masterpiece.
A lot of people complain at how slow the movie was and yet they claim to be Alien fans. Hmmm I guess they never saw the first movie and they don't know Ridley Scott. If your a fan of the Alien Films, especially the first two, and have a great understanding of Greek mythology and have an open mind to asking the question of where we came from then I think you will definitely enjoy this movie like i did.
