All About the Prehistory of Human Evolution and Discoveries

The term -the Prehistory (La prehistoria)- refers to the time since the beginning of universe or often it can be referred to the period when life first begins on the earth. This era ended with the discovery of writing, about 6,000 years ago and also the end of prehistory varies from region to region. It is very long period which is divided up into three ages the Paleolithic Age, the Mesolithic, the Neolithic Age and the Metal Age.

The archaeologist have contributed that it is the most imperative period that tells us about the history of human evolution about five millions years back. The growth of human life begins with different phases that include the Australopethicus and later begin with evolution of Homo erectus, Homo habilis, and Homo sapiens. Most of the people lived for many years in the Paleolithic and Neolithic Age and are the immediate ancestors of modern man.

The human have started learning and living in the Paleolithic (Paleolitico) Age (the Old Stone Age). The era of the old age began about the 2.5 to 2 million years ago. In this period the Paleolithic humans made tools of stone, bone, and wood to survive in the world. They have made this weapon to protect and also to hunt the animals to fulfill their basic needs. One of the most important and greatest discoveries made in this period by human is the -Fire- which is the turning point in the human history.

The discovery of the development of ape to man is credited to two great scientists Sir Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin. Because of the hard work of these two scientists we are able to know about the human history and our evolution. At present with the advent of internet it is has become easier to gather relevant information and blogs regarding the Prehistory, Paleolithic and Mesolithic (Mesolitico) period.
