The Social Organization of Early Human Groups
- 228 Downloads
There is evidence for the existence of groups that, by some definitions, we might call human—at least they were fully bipedal primate animals—going back to between 3 and 31/2 million years ago. We will not, however, go back that far in this chapter. The farther back in time one goes, of course, the smaller is the similarity between them and the current species of human being. In addition, the farther back in time, the less available evidence there is about how they lived and what they did.
