  1. 1. By Christina<br />Early Man: Food and Clothes<br />
  2. 2. Since almost 3 million BCE humans have been alive. They had evolved from apes and were more human like than apes and more ape like than humans. Over the years humans evolved into us and their food and clothes changed with them. Food has changed from raw meat and berries to pizza and sushi. The clothes have evolved too. What were stylish animals skins then are now jeans, hoodies and Uggs. In this Powerpoint we will look back in time and investigate all the food and clothing of early man. <br />Introduction<br />
  3. 3. Australopithecus afarensis<br />The first Australopithecus afarensis (whew that’s a long name!) ever found was named Lucy in Africa. <br />From her fossilized skeleton scientists and archaeologists found out many things. Australopithecus afarensis was a vegetarian. <br />They would go and collect berries, bugs, honey, termites insects and steal eggs from nests. <br />They only ate meat when they could find it. The meat was usually found by scavenging. <br />The Australopithecus afarensis did not where any clothes because they had lots of body hair and did not wear any shoes. <br />Beehive<br />Berries<br />Eggs<br />Termite Mound<br />Insects<br />
  4. 4. Homo habilis<br />The first homo habilis was found in Africa and their brains were larger than Australopithecus afarensis and they knew to follow food. <br />They did not eat much meat but they moved their home around when the things in their omnivore diet ran out. <br />Homo habilis was mostly vegetarian and ate a bit of scavenged meat. This means that the meat was already dead. <br />Their diet was made up of berries, bird eggs, fruits, roots, nuts and wild vegetables. <br />Homo habilis wore no clothes because most of their body was covered in hair. They also mostly lived in Africa which was also very warm. Their was no need for clothes. <br />Roots<br />Wild Berries<br />Wild Vegetables<br />Eggs<br />Nuts<br />
  5. 5. Homo erectus<br />Homo erectus was the first hominid to migrate out of Africa and to make fire. <br />Because they could make fire Homo erectus was also the first hominid to cook their food. <br />They could also communicate. Because of this Homo erectus was able to hunt game in a group. They were able to eat cooked freshly caught meat. Homo erectus still ate scavenged meat. <br />Homo erecuts also ate wild fruit, vegetables, nuts and roots. <br />They also were able to make their clothes out of animals skins. They would start off by just by placing the skins around their bodies.<br />Eventually the clothing became more advanced. Homo erectus were able to sew clothing together with bits of leather. <br />Wild Fruit<br />Wild Vegetable<br />Nuts<br />Roots<br />Bone Needles used to make clothes<br />
  6. 6. Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis <br />Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis had brains bigger than ours. They were also bigger and stronger than us. <br />They were able to make clothes by sewing pieces of animals skin together. The thread was made from different parts of the animal. <br />They were also able to make boots. <br />Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis were hunters and gatherers. They were also able to cook their food. <br />They were omnivores but mostly ate cooked meat that was caught and then stored in the ground. <br />Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis also ate wild fruits. Wild grains were stored in the ground to keep hidden from small rodents. <br />Meat<br />Grains<br />Berries<br />Animals Skin Clothing<br />
  7. 7. Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon<br />Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon knew how to cure and keep food. With this skill they could catch and gather food and keep it for the winter or when food was scarce. <br />They ate lots of fresh game and fish which was caught and then stored.<br />Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon also ate lots of different fruit, seeds, berries, nuts and roots. <br />Clothes were made up of animals skins sewn together with thread like parts of the animal. This was for winter weather and cold climates.<br />In the summer or when the weather was warm, Homo sapiens Cro-Magnon made clothes out of woven grass and tree bark.<br />Types of jewellery, like necklaces and bracelets were made out of bones, teeth, feathers, shells, flowers and shells. <br />Tattoos were also made worn and made out of natural paint and dye. <br />Berries<br />Grain<br />Fruit<br />Nuts<br />Bone Jewellery<br />
  8. 8. Homo sapiens sapiens<br />Homo sapiens sapiens knew how to farm. They were able to control the growth of their food. <br />They were mostly omnivores and ate a variety of different things. <br />After their food was caught, Homo sapiens sapiens were able to cure and save their food. <br />Many types of food were caught or gathered. Some examples are game, fish, fruits, vegetables, bark, grains, nuts, roots and so many more things.<br />Homo sapiens sapiens had a HUGE variety in their diet. <br />Clothes were still made up of animal skins, bark and twigs. Homo sapiens sapiens also knew how to make jewellery and shoes. The shoes were made up of animal skins.<br />Jewellery was made up of feather, flowers, shells, bones and teeth. <br />Feather Jewellery<br />Berries<br />Fish<br />Bark<br />Fruit<br />Vegetables<br />
  9. 9. As you have seen, clothes and food have changed drastically through the evolution of the human race. From raw meat and termites to cured fish and fresh grain, food has improved making the humans they provide healthier as well. Clothing has become even better. Humans were able to live every where do to their ability to make clothes for all environments. Hominids have also been able to create jewellery and decorations for themselves out of the materials that they have. All of these things have finally lead up to the food and clothes that we are so grateful for today. <br />Conclusion<br />
