Description:

Prehistory is a term used to describe the period before recorded history. It can also refer to the time since human-like beings appeared.

It was the time when humans were nomads, foraging for food and hunting wild animals. Fire and tools improved lives. Early humans created language, religion, and art.

It is debatable whether humans lived at the same time as dinosaurs.
