Our Prehistoric Parents
According to Richard Rudgley, author of Lost Civilizations of the Stone Age (New York: The Free Press, 1999), from
whose work many of the following facts have been gleaned, “The prehistory of humankind is no mere prelude to
history; history is rather a colourful and eventful afterword to the Stone Age.” Human history is the part of the
experience of human beings on the planet that has been written down, and as noted above, it was generally written
by the “winners” in an explanation of how they overcame the “losers.” As for prehistory, archaeologists and cultural
researchers are still putting the puzzle pieces together to help explain how we got to be where we are, and what
preceded us. Below are some highlights of things to keep in mind about our prehistoric ancestors.
