Our ingenious and inventive forebears are the subject of this book. Here we learn how slingshot and spear radically altered the way early peoples hunted, while the paintings they made on the walls of caves expressed a remarkable modernity of thought. The continual development of new technologies - from architecture and musical instruments to weapons and symbolic language - makes the Palaeolithic period one of the richest in the history of humankind. A new society is born, revealed in these pages in all its facets: its arts, its rituals, its diverse cultures.
