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/.

another "scholar" Fanacizing reality. No, Farmers-herders have defeated Hunter-gatherers every single time in history. Because it is a much more superior way of life. just imagine the scene of European hunter-gatherer a group of 14 who can't even speak the language of the other group of 14 in the next valley.when they were sleeping and Hoping to catch a squirrel in the morning as not to starve. to wake up in the morning and see in the distance the raging dust of 1,700 Middle Easterners with thousands of cows, goats, and wolves with their donkeys carrying hundreds of sacks of wheat.
