The History Of the Inventions During the Paleolithic Era By: Ian Berger listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ http://www.historyworld.net/wrldhis/plaintexthistories.asp?historyid=ab23 Fire made it easier and possible to move south. Also, it helped people cook foods. This helped fight disease. People eventually learned to better control fire. Fire (1,000,000 B.C.E.) http://www.historiasiglo20.org/prehistory/index.htm http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ The earliest clothing was made of fur, leather, leaves, or grass, draped, wrapped, or tied about the body to stay protected from the environment. Needle bones have been found to affirm sewing back then. Clothing (500,000-100,000 B.C.E) The first housing was believed to be a hut in japan consisting of post holes, and stones. Early people also lived in caves. Housing (500,00 B.C.E) http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ These were believed to be used by early humans and chimpanzees. Eventually, (250,000 years ago) the spears had fire hardened points. The blades have become more, and more complex. Spears (400,000 B.C.E) http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ The first pigments used were ochres and iron oxides. Also, the pigments/paints were found to be used for aesthetic purposes like body decoration. They also used paint grinding tools. Pigments (400,000 B.C.E.) http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ The boat was first used to travel to New Guinea as it is believed. Ancient Egyptians used wooden planks tightly woven together as another boat prototype. They were used for hulling loads, traveling, and fishing. Boat (60,000 B.C.E.) http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ Flutes were the first known instruments. The first one found was made from a mammoth tusk around 50,000 B.C.E. found in Swabian Alb. Most flutes were made out of some sort of animal bone. The "flute" had three holes. Musical Instruments (50,000 B.C.E.) http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ These were placed on the floors of dirt huts to make a better surface than dirt and mud. Rugs/rush were made out of felt, and/or tree bark. They also might have been woven occasionally. Felt Rugs and Rush Matting (23,000-4,000 B.C.E) The Egyptians were the first to use/make twisted, not natural, rope. The Egyptian rope was generally made of water reed fibers. Other rope has been made of palms, flax, grass, papyrus, leather, and animal hair. Twisted Rope (17,000 B.C.E.) http://listverse.com/2007/10/07/top-10-ancient-inventions/ People stitched skins together with a hole and thread. The first needle was made out of bone and/or ivory. Thread was sometimes believed to be made of horse hair.
