By: Mark L.<br />Tools of the Ancient Man<br />
Humans have evolved over the ages to become what we are now. We did not always look or think like this. Their have been many different species of hominids as the years have gone by. Some have died out, some evolved into us. I am going to be covering the evolution of tools alongside man.<br />Introduction<br />
<ul><li>The Australopithecus was basically an ape that could stand on two feet.
They were also the first hominids to leave Africa and move into Europe.
There were more social than the previous hominids.</li></ul>Homo Erectus<br />
<ul><li>During the Neandrathal time, there was a break through for tool making.
They made stone tipped spears, bone needles, bone fish hooks etc.
Neandrathals were stronger, taller and had bigger brains than modern humans.
They also began to sew clothes of animal skin.
Their traps became more advanced and made more sufficient tools.</li></ul>Homo sapienNeandrathals<br />
<ul><li>The cro-magnons began to make statues and other art.
If you ever see a cave painting then you would know that it came from cro-magnons.
Although they did not farm, they did preserve and store their food underground or in caves.
They also invented the bow and arrow and oil lamps.
They had slightly bigger brains and bodies than the neandrathals.</li></ul>Homo sapienCro-magnon<br />
<ul><li>These are the species of hominids that we are.
The key ability of the homo sapien sapiens is that we can farm crops.
Although the cro-magnon stored and preserved food, they did not farm.
We have invented electric tools such as cars, chain saws, jack hammers, cranes and so many others.
Although very similar to, we probably don’t have any neandrathal ancestry because they died out instead of evolving.</li></ul>Homo sapien sapiens<br />
Tools sure have evolved over the ages from race to race, depending on wheree they live, how they live, how big their brains are and other factors. There has been a huge breakthrough for tools during our time as Homo sapien sapiens because of electricity. We have so many new inventions thanks to electricity that would be absolutely ridiculous to think about hundreds of years ago. Technology is growing faster and faster. Soon there will be inventions that we now think are ridiculous. Science will just have to wait for the progression of tools in future years.<br />Conclusion<br />
