Question

Is there any evidence of evolution within recorded history ? (ie. past few thousand years)

Answer

Good question: there are instances where it looks like there is rapid genetic change within a few generations (age of firth birth in Quebec in the 1800s for example), ... But essentially it's assumed that we are, at least superficially, physically and mentally equivalent to humans tens of thousands of years ago.
