Key Concept Description: The term Big Geography draws attention
to the global nature of world history. Throughout the Paleolithic
period, humans migrated from Africa to Eurasia, Australia, and the
Americas. Early humans were mobile and creative in adapting to
different geographical settings from savanna to desert to Ice Age
tundra. By making an analogy with modern hunter forager
societies, anthropologists infer that these bands were relatively
egalitarian. Humans also developed varied and sophisticated
Objective 1.1.1: Archeological evidence indicates that during the
Paleolithic era, hunting-foraging bands of humans gradually
migrated from their origin in East Africa to Eurasia, Australia, and
the Americas, adapting their technology and cultures to new
climate regions.
A. Humans used fire in new ways: to aid hunting and foraging,
to protect against predators, and to adapt to cold
B. Humans developed a wider range of tools specially adapted
to different environments from tropics to tundra.
C. Economic structures focused on small kinship groups of
hunting foraging bands that could make what they needed
to survive. However, not all groups were self-sufficient;
they exchanged people, ideas, and goods.
