Cave paintings in France = recorded history and they are dated at 25k or better. Still, it is a decent amount of time and they already had the timeslot picked, then they found a good spot for the RPG to fit into.
If you look at each period on Amalur.com's timeline they are all presented in a way that could support a game or maybe novels in the future.

I just hope some info gets released asap on Copernicus, and I do hope Copernicus comes out before R2. It would send a bad message to the masses of people that read tea leaves and between the lines. How BHG (a purchased company) was aquired to introduce Amalur to gamers. But, their add-on company is in fact more productive and successful than the main company. Proven by the release of 2 full games and numerous DLC's (by BHG) prior to even official word being given out about the MMO <which is the whole purpose of 38S being in existance>.
Everything I have heard indicates that the MMO will be a 1000 years beforehand. Can you cite some links to indicate 2000 years http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/44283/kingdoms-of-amalur-reckoning-mmo-rpg
I also think think that we will see more information pre Deep Gloam someday.
It's 2000 years after Reckoning during the Age of Heroes.
http://www.mmorpg.com/showFeature.cfm/loadFeature/5034Unlike Reconing, Project Copernicus is a massively-multiplayer online game set some 2,000 years after the happenings of Reckoning.
The game itself (Reckoning) is set 2,000 years before the MMO at what is certainly one of the most pivotal moments in the world’s history.
