Table of Contents

Long before the days of computers and cell phones, human innovation was a matter of life and death. In Arrowpoints, Spearheads, & Knives of Prehistoric Times, Thomas Wilson delivers an in-depth, fascinating account of the tools early humans used during the Paleolithic period in Western Europe and America. Wilson details why our ancestors developed and refined the weaponry and other tools needed for survival, the materials they used for their tools, and how they manufactured what they required. For the purposes of everyday tasks such as scraping and grinding, to the essentials of hunting, these tools are all the product of need; and here Wilson writes with a sophisticated expertise about human ingenuity in the face of an unforgiving world.

This heavily illustrated volume contains hundreds of beautifully rendered sketches of the arrowpoints, spearheads, and various cutting and grinding tools used by our ancestors. An encyclopedic resource, this book is a must-have for historians, collectors, and anthropologists, and will be of interest to anyone fascinated by how far our tools and technology have come in a relatively short period of time.
