Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and engaging! The lecturer got me interested in a topic I didn't think I'd be keen to learn about. Her presentation was very clear and she spoke without annoying verbal tics. I'm looking forward to the full course after watching this pilot.

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.
