The genesis of the spear Phalanx is lost in time.. but I expect it has it's true beginning in groups of spear wielding hunters going against very big game in the Neolithic Era..

The human animal deprived of natural weapons, bestowed with intelligence has devised every means of combat, from the cast stone and stick to space launched Nuclear Missiles, we are the ultimate killing Machine.

no culture in the history of man has been so innovative and so seeking for advance in efficiency and effectiveness in killing their fellow man as the Europeans.
