So it is the period of time in which humanity was only able to pass on their knowledge from generation to generation orally. The historical sources that we can analyze analyse to study Prehistory are only prehistoric archaeological sources as there are no written sources. In addition when we study the prehistory we find that the preserved archaeological remains are scarce and are actually only a small percentage of objects that existed.<br />
The archaeological remains on which we can base to study prehistoric times are:
* [[Paleolithic human fossils|Fossil Bones]]* [[Instruments or toolsmade by man during the Paleolithic|Instruments or tools]]* [[Art of the Paleolithic|Artworks.]]Typically, these remains are damaged and its their reconstruction, interpretation and fechación dating sometimes have a great difficulty.
To date the prehistoric archaeological remains there are various systems:
* You can relate to geological dates corresponding to the ground level where they have been located. This is the oldest and less accurate.
* They can be dated by carbon-14 analysis and other similar systems. This system is the most modern and reliable.
* Many other more advanced technologies within a wide range of scientific disciplines technologies are used.
By definition not all geographic areas and cultures in went into and out of Prehistory at the same time. Different villages nations and areas were developed at different speeds, and therefore it is necessary to study each area according to its own characteristics. Mainly the division would be:* Prehistory Middle East ([[Ancient Mesopotamia ]] and vicinity)* Prehistory in Africa (with special emphasis on the [[Nile river|Nile Valley]])
* Prehistory in Asia.
* Prehistory in Europe.
* Prehistory in America.
Do Please, do not fall into make the error so to adhere to mistake of just study the Middle East and Europe. You can not forget that in virtually all Earth early man left his footprints and our obligation is to recover that information to enrich the heritage of the entire humanitymankind. <br />
= Stages of Prehistory =
Prehistory is usually divided into the following stages:
* [[The Palaeolithic in the Quaternary and Pleistocene Paleolithic|. The Paleolithic]] is the oldest and longest stage. The men Men were nomads and were engaged in gathering and hunting. They had to adapt to [[climate changes during the Paleolithic | several important changes to the climate]]* [[The Mesolithic |. The Mesolithic]] is the transition between [[Paleolithic|the Paleolithic ]] and [[Neolithic ]] between 10,000 BC and 7,000 BC Humanity Mankind still engaged in hunting and gathering but the last ice age has ended.* [[The Neolithic |. In Neolithic]] agriculture and grazing appears and begin begins to form the first permanent settlements.
