Story of "primitive" man 


Story of "primitive" man



In no branch of knowledge has there been more rapid advance during the past fifty years than in that which deals with the history of so-called " primitive " man. A generation or two ago, an inquiry was rarely pushed beyond the sources of information supplied by written documents, coins, inscriptions, and such like materials. The possible existence of other materials throwing light on remote ages in which man had played a part — ages about which history was either silent or recorded only myths and legends — was but here and there recognized.
