The stone age
The first period in human history is called the Stone Age, which took place before there were any written records. Our earliest human acestors were making tools stone at least two million years ago, but our story really begins with the arrival of modern humans, called Homo sapiens, about 100,000 years ago.
This fascinating volume delves into the mysteries and wonders of this past, covering everything that the enquiring mind will want to know about our ancestors. From social structure, hunting, finding food, the discovery fire, communication and types of shelter to crop-growing, crafts, clothing, means of transportation, the first religions and primitive art, the book explores every aspect of the lives of the people who shaped the very first stages of our civilization.
