Synopsis

Hands-on History! Stone Age Step Back in the Time of the Earliest Humans, with 15 Step-by-step Projects and 380 Exciting Pictures by Charlotte Hurdman

Travel back two million years to discover fascinating facts about the life of Stone Age people - where they lived, what they ate, and what they looked like. Marvel at the fine tools and weapons they made, and at their survival alongside creatures such as mammoths. This title features 15 easy and fun projects that enable you to re-create the past - build a shelter from clay mammoth bones, paint your own cave art, make Stone Age hunting tools such as a bow and arrow, fashion a leopard's tooth necklace, prepare a prehistoric meal, model a clay pot, and construct a miniature stonehenge. More than 380 photographs and illustrations include cross sections, a historical map and a pictorial timeline. It is ideal for home or school use for ages 8 to 12. Our earliest human ancestors were making tools from stone at least two million years ago, but our story really begins with the arrival of modern humans, called Homo sapiens sapiens, about 100,000 years ago. This fascinating volume delves into the mysteries and wonders of this distant past. From social structure, communication, hunting, the discovery of fire and types of shelter to crop-growing, crafts, clothing, the first religions and primitive art, this book explores every aspect of the people who shaped the first stages of our civilization.
