A History of Food: Fire

ID : 84854   
« back to classes page
We’ll explore how cooking food altered the upright primate's life history in many ways that still impact us today. It is speculated that the use of fire was a major contributing factor to the growth of the large human brain. New sources of food became available when cooked, facilitating migrations. The use of fire, itself a form of technology, correlates with tool making, early forms of socializing, expanding territories and theoretically, the development of language. This lecture also includes the origins of hunting and barbecue.
