Stone Age Hunter Gatherers ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here historical expert Martin Patterson shares his vast knowledge of the Stone Age Hunter Gatherer period. His passion and skill is obvious as he shows us a range of replica tools and equipment he has fashioned from natural materials including a flint-headed axe, a scythe from deer antler, a fire-hardened digging stick and a range of spears for hunting - explaining how these would have been used and maintained in the Stone Age. Martin shows us needles from bone; how pine resin, soot and bees wax can make a sort of glue and how stinging nettle fibre would have been used like string to make trapping nets. He stresses the importance of looking after the natural environment - then and now - to encourage new growth and to ensure a regular harvest. http://www.handsonhistory.co.uk/.

The European peoples are descended from the Neanderthal species with slight admixture from the homo sapien – largely the Indo-European folk.

I doubt they did much cooking. Most meals were raw, speaking of meat/whole animal

That is politically correct pseudoscience. First of all, the whole theory that humans came from Africa is in question, second of all, after a couple of thousand years in a dark, cold climate, the people would have white skin. Even the Ancient Egyptians were light-skinned with red hair.
