peak stone: life after the crash

The Stone Age did not end for lack of stone.
Sheikh    Yamani, quoted in the issue of the Economist with the best cover ever

No stones = end of Stone Age. In the vast clay field there is a fundamental lack of natural resources, materials that are indispensable for an urban society. The lack of stone may literally be seen as attributing to the end of the Stone Age.
from John Heise's on-line article about ancient Mesopotamia
