Collection: Early Humans & Prehistoric Earth

Millions of years ago, Earth and its inhabitants looked very different than they do today. Long before people drove cars or invented electricity, Earth was home to early humans, or Neanderthals, who used stone tools, cooked over fires, and hunted and gathered food. Large mammals, including woolly mammoths, saber tooth tigers, and giant sloths, roamed the land. While there exist no written records of these events, fossils and artifacts, along with advanced technology, allow scientists to piece together details about prehistoric life and the origins of humans. This collection features the discoveries of archaeologists, anthropologists, geologists, and others who bring to light the mysteries of prehistoric Earth and the lives of our earliest human ancestors.
