Course Content

This course offers an overview of the development of the very early stages of the life of humans and human society. It draws information from a range of theories as well as actual anthropological and archaeological materials (without insisting on details of their typology). It aims to communicate the information we have about these remote periods and discuss how we arrive to any conclusions about periods for which written sources are not available to the historian.
