The underlying premise of the series is very insulting, ancient peoples could not figure things out without alien intervention. No human farmer while he is out of doors for most of the day could figure out that the sun rises or sets in a different location each day. No one would notice that round objects move much better than flat objects or that the fats from plants or animals make thing slippery so you can move very large objects a lot easier. Some rocks fall into a fire or arranged around a fire to create a fire pit and some parts of the rocks get melted and people figure out that these materials are useful or just pretty. It was not instant it took thousands of years Humans have been around for over a million years, people have only lived in cities for about six thousand years, It humanity that long to get the point where they could grow enough food to support large groups of people. There probably have been thousands of dead ends that have not been recorded, just imagine all the dead from eating the wrong food, the wrong part or eating it the wrong way. A good example would be the potato which is part of nightshade family so it leaves are poisonous but part of the roots are edible when cooked. How many tries did it take to figure it out. The pyramids which were a huge achievement of ancient Egypt took several tries before the ones I Giza, they are several others which show how the design changed over time. A lot of civilizations said gods gave the people the knowledge but it was people who figure out things out so far in the past the ancients even forgot who found the knowledge. What we should do is to celebrate the people who figured everything out and not belittle their achievements by saying it was all giving to us by aliens.
