comment What is the origin of Indian weekday names?
Interesting, but how is that relevant? The question wasn't about the Norse names. The fact remains that (except in Sanskrit) the Indian days are named after the same celestial bodies as the corresponding Graeco-Roman days, even if the gods associated with those bodies are not perfectly equivalent.

comment How does Göbekli Tepe fit into the current picture of society development?
@spiceyokooko You're assuming that the switch from perfectly nomadic hunter-gatherers to perfectly sedentary farmers was instantaneous, without any intermediate stages. That's unrealistic.

I thought droit du seigneur didn't actually exist. Am I missing something?

They were not living next to a sea full of fish, but they were living in the Fertile Crescent, where wild cereals were plentiful. (These same cereals would later be domesticated as humankind's first crops.) Also, please elaborate what you mean by "pre-conceived notions of hunter-gatherers switching to agriculture".

Back then the site would have been part of the Fertile Crescent.
