Welcome to Wahgi Valley
Thirty thousand years ago the Wahgi Valley had some of the most advanced farming practices, and social and political organisations on earth. Today descendants of those early farmers still rely on technologies developed by their forefathers. If you are interested in why, despite their apparent head start, the farmers of the Wahgi Valley don’t rule the world, read Jared Diamond’s critically acclaimed Guns, Germs and Steel, which untangles the thorny issues (none of them race-related) that enabled only some cultures to produce mighty civilisations. There are numerous references to Highland farmers throughout the book.
