Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hope there's more to come! I love history, but my knowledge of prehistory is sadly pretty limited. I would love to learn more about it from a trusted source! I hope the rest of this course is added!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life before Agriculture The Professor did a very good job in delivering general to specific information. My time was well spent with her. I'd like to hear more on this subject from her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pilot! Thanks for this pilot. I felt young Professor delivered well with enough gravitas to get people interested in archeology, paleoarcheolgy content. I will look for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing I sure hope this course is added because I learned so much during the pilot and have so many more questions. I could do my own research, but as a teacher myself, I do not have that much time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Please! A period in history that so little is known about. What could be better than a highly qualified teacher explaining it all in such a clearly understandable fashion. Plenty more to explain so don't stop now.

Overview

Discover the fascinating world of archaeological science and see how it helps us to understand the almost 200,000 years of human prehistory before the known years of "Homo sapiens" and farming.
Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

01: Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

Join archaeologist Professor Suzanne Pilaar Birch to discover what the fairly new school of archaeological science can tell us about life before agriculture at the continental scale of human migration, since our species first emerged in East Africa 200,000 years ago, to the earliest agricultural societies which appeared around 12,000 years ago—all the while, adapting to the diverse environments around the world. Using insights gained through detailed case studies and cutting-edge scientific methods, you’ll see what guided human decisions about what to eat, where to live, when to move, and how to acquire what was needed for daily survival.
