Pigeons and, especially, rabbits also played an important role, being available all year round. In England the major source of protein for the feudal peasants were rabbits rather than pigs. Gone out of fashion in the UK but still very much available in La Palma supermarkets. We buy one every 2-3 weeks or so.

The OP's statement framed it as "Upon these 2 things Civilization is founded" not "These 2 items were the 2 most important, of many, protein storage systems used in Eurostan."

And you appear not to have understood the meaning of "central Europe".

Default Project Cassandra predicts future conflicts

I just read this article from "The Guardian" about a project the German military along with some University profs created called project Cassandra, named after the renown Trojan princess who could predict the future. It aimed to predict future conflicts based on changes in literature, specifically published books. It actually seemed to have worked.
Take this with a grain of salt as it seems incredible until further verification but its author is a legitimate jpurnalist.

It was the Bulgarian "Pravetz" (a very clean IBM XT [or AT?] clone, not an Apple clone), in 1988 (or 89?)

Edit, @Serge, FelixPC precedes that, too, and it was better, unfortunately, they were bit more costly, and not as many were produced either.
