Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In an effort to understand how early humans first made and used stone tools the authors went to the prehistoric sites of East Africa and, combining archaeological research with practical experimentation, learned to make stone tools themselves. In this book they examine the history of prehistoric study and the development of Early Man and stone use, and present the exciting discoveries they made through their own practical experiments. New in paperback for 1995.

From the Back Cover:

In this dramatic reconstruction of the daily lives of the earliest tool-making humans, two leading anthropologists reveal how the first technologies-- stone, wood, and bone tools-- forever changed the course of human evolution.

Drawing on two decades of fieldwork around the world, authors Kathy Schick and Nicholas Toth take readers on an eye-opening journey into humankind's distant past-- traveling from the savannahs of East Africa to the plains of northern China and the mountains of New Guinea-- offering a behind-the-scenes look at the discovery, excavation, and interpretation of early prehistoric sites.

Based on the authors' unique mix of archaeology and practical experiments, ranging from making their own stone tools to theorizing about the origins of human intelligence, "Making Silent Stones Speak" brings the latest ideas about human evolution to life.
