PREHISTORIC  MEN 

ROBERT  J.  BRAIDWOOD 

This  little  book,  first  published  in  1948,  is  part  of  the  Chicago  Natural  History 
Popular  History  series  that  explains  difficult  subjects  in  ways  and  terms  we  all  can 
understand.  It  was  published  at  a time  in  Anthropology  when  exciting  things  like 
carbon  dating  were  first  being  used  and  refined.  "Prehistory  means  the  time 
before  written  history  began.  Actually,  more  than  99  per  cent  of  man’s  story  is 
prehistory.  Man  is  at  least  half  a million  years  old,  but  he  did  not  begin  to  write 
history  (or  to  write  anything)  until  about  5,000  years  ago.  The  men  who  lived  in 
prehistoric  times  left  us  no  history  books,  but  they  did  unintentionally  leave  a 
record  of  their  presence  and  their  way  of  life.  This  record  is  studied  and 
interpreted  by  different  kinds  of  scientists."
