Subject: Re: A quick question...

I'll check my paleo/phys. anth notes for this period and reply later
today; as these notes are in a free form database, it'll be straightforward
to search them for this particular word.

re: the suggestion to check the OED, this can give examples of
early use, but should never be relied upon to be definitive. I can
give a number of examples I know of where it falls far short here.
