Modern

The prehistoric period is arguably one of the most fascinating periods because it is the longest and we have little written information about it. To understand what life was like during this time we have to draw on archaeological evidence, science, experimental archaeology,  research, and anthropology to form our understanding. New discoveries are being made all the time, and what we thought we knew about this period is constantly evolving.
