Juxta | Bibliothèque de textes classiques grecs et latins Livius. Articles on Ancient History Internet Sacred Text Archive Home Handy Man - Tools - Early Humans for Kids Early man did not have sharp claws or strong sharp teeth. He was not larger or stronger than other animals. He could not run like deer or antelope. So how did early man survive? He had to use the things that animals did not have, reason and invention. The Stone Age is considered to have begun about two million years ago, and ended sometime after the end of the last ice age about ten thousand years ago. During the Stone Age, Homo Habilis appeared. Some scientists believe that Homo Habilis did not know how to start a fire. Campfires were very useful to Homo Habilis since fire keeps most animals away, so a campfire would be watched carefully to keep it going.
Resources grec (Anneau central UCL) Consigne - Description : L'anneau central constitue une procédure interactive sur la Toile. Elle est l'oeuvre de l'ingénierie de Boris Maroutaeff. Objectifs : Cette procédure permet à l'utilisateur - enseignant ou apprenant - de mettre en oeuvre, à partir d'un point d'accès unique, quatre instruments de travail qui constituent autant de pièces maîtresses des projets ITINERA ELECTRONICA - HODOI ELEKTRONIKAI et HELIOS.

Dispositif (ou pupitre virtuel) : le dispositif comprend : Instruments de travail : Ultérieurement :

bibliotheca Augustana Humanam impotentiam in moderandis, & coercendis affectibus Servitutem voco; homo enim affectibus obnoxius sui juris non est, sed fortunæ, in cujus potestate ita est, ut sæpe coactus sit, quanquam meliora sibi videat, deteriora tamen sequi. Hujus rei causam, & quid præterea affectus boni, vel mali habent, in hac Parte demonstrare proposui. Sed antequam incipiam, pauca de perfectione, & imperfectione, deque bono, & malo præfari lubet. Qui rem aliquam facere constituit, eamque perfecit, rem suam perfectam esse, non tantum ipse, sed etiam unusquisque, qui mentem Auctoris illius operis, & scopum recte noverit, aut se novisse crediderit, dicet. Ex. gr. si quis aliquod opus (quod suppono nondum esse peractum) viderit, noveritque scopum Auctoris illius operis esse domum ædificare, is domum imperfectam esse dicet, & contra perfectam, simulatque opus ad finem, quem ejus Auctor eidem dare constituerat, perductum viderit.

Collapse: Why do civilisations fall? Hundreds of years ago in what is now modern Honduras, Copán was a thriving civilization, a center of the cultural life of the Maya. Tens of thousands of people made their home in the Copán Valley. Yet despite its importance, Copán went into decline. Across the vast territory of the ancient Maya, other important sites were sharing a similar fate. Why did this great civilization fall? can combine with external causes (such as war or natural disaster) to bring about a collapse. Join us as we explore the collapse of four ancient civilizations. Ready to get started? "Collapse" is inspired by programs from Out of the Past, a video series from Annenberg Media.
