europe dates back longer then you think it does, Homo erectus and Neanderthals settled Europe long before the emergence of modern humans, Homo sapiens. The earliest appearance of anatomically modern people in Europe has been dated to 35,000 BC. Evidence of permanent settlement dates from the 7th millennium BC in Bulgaria, Romania and Greece. The Neolithic reached Central Europe in the 6th millennium BC and parts of Northern Europe in the 5th and 4th millennium BC. There is no prehistoric culture that covers the whole of Europe. For short introductions to the various cultures like Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

The first well-known literate civilization in Europe was that of the Minoans of the island of Crete and later the Myceneans in the adjacent parts of Greece, starting at the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC. Around 400 BC, the La Tene culture spread over most of the interior as far as the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal), and later Anatolia. The Etruscans inhabited central Italy and Lombardy, where they were displaced by the Celts, who mingled with earlier residents of Iberia to produce a unique Celtiberian culture. As the Celts did not use a written language, knowledge of them is piecemeal. The Romans encountered them and recorded a great deal about them; these records and the archaeological evidence form our primary understanding of this extremely influential culture. The Celts posed a formidable, if disorganized, competition to the Roman state, that later colonized and conquered much of the southern portion of Europe.

Talented but often underrated and ridiculed big-haired 1980's power rock band fronted by blond Swede Joey Tempest who were head and shoulders musically above their counterparts, but were never given a chance to prove themselves.

A fairly small continent to the west of Asia, and the only one whose first and last letters start with a vowel other than 'A'. Where most of the 'classy' (or bloody) civilizations started and known for countries with colourful histories like England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Romania etc. A good percent of Americans hate the Europeans and the most Europeans (ever polite) have made a big deal over reciprocating these feelings a million times over and hating the Americans back. The Americans who like Europe have something coming to them still have something coming to them because a good percentage of the Europeans hate you anyway.
European: Lovely weather we're...

American: I hate you guys!

European: We hate you too. *heart*

Collection of tiny nations STILL obsessed with and feeling insecurity toward America. Still whining because it is largely irrelevant to America. China, on the other hand, is on the list of countries to invite over for dinner.
Europe can go to sleep knowing that America does not care as much about you as you care about it!
