The first hunters and gatherers: The first
human beings lived on hunting, fishing and the
gathering on wild fruits.. The hunted mammoths,
bears, elephants, deer, bison and other animals.
Then they used their meat as food and their skins
as clothes.They were nomadic, that is to say they
did not live in a fixed place but moved from place
to place in search of good areas for hunting, with
plenty of plants. They lived in caves, outdoors or
in cabins which were built with tree branches and
animal skins, and they tried to settle near rivers.
Men and women organised themselves into small
tribes, constituted by the members of the same
family.In general terms, the climate was very cold,
diseases were very common and most men and
women no older than 35 years old.
