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.

new genetic evidence has shown that the wester hunter and gatherers was actually darkskinned with blue eyes. Search for the newest research and the newest facerecontruction of the cheddar man.

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.

Frida the ancient egyptians weren’t light skinned. We don’t exactly know what they looked like but a large part of their population looked african (nubians) and the rest middle esstern (native egyptians). Secondly, you need two specific genomes to have white skin. Until about 15000 years ago we didn’t have these genes.

As for your point on humans coming from africa, we have only found homo sapien bones dating back 100000 years or less outside of africa.

The Cheddar man thing was a fake. Nowhere in the research did it say he would have had dark skin, but the media produced an entire documentary around that idea to use as multicultural propaganda.
