Evolution of Humans and Society - Prehistoric Period
We live in the age of Information Technology. The mobile phones have literally put the world on our finger tips. The all-encompassing knowledge that we possess now, which has helped in the development of powerful technology, did not emerge all of a sudden. The foundation for our modern life was facilitated by the development of the process of cognition among the human ancestors in the prehistoric age.
Prehistoric people were the pioneers of creative knowledge. From the artefacts and the languages they developed, we are able to understand how intelligent they were.
Artefact is an object or tool made or modified by humans.
Cognition refers to the act of mind in which knowledge and understanding are acquired through thoughts, experiences and senses. Cognition is related to development of human thought.
