The Power of The Early Humans

The early humans were very important to civilization. Australopithecus afarensis was the first hominid to be a biped. This in effect allowed later hominids such as Homo habilis to emerge as a the first toolmaking hominid. Homo erectus with the discovery and control of fire paved the way allowing migration, protection, and the seeds of culture to take place.
