Although this is a book for children, Savage Stone Age helped me understand better my anthropology class. The author knows how and when to insert little jokes and ironies between the lines to remind the reader that history can be like child's play.
Throughout this book you will read/learn about the time line of human evolution and the three prehistoric periods of mankind (in a brief introductory chapter), how Stone Agers lived, the animals they hunted till becoming extinct, the food they ate and, most important, how they cooked it, weird beliefs and gruesome burials, brainy archeologists and treasure hunters, accidental discoveries, stone circles legends and mysteries - including many fascinating facts about Stonehenge, and many curious things, which won't let you put the book/reading device down.
There are also some little tests, through which Terry Deary challenges you to remember what you have learned about the Stone Age. But don't worry if you get the answers wrong, because you are doing it just for fun.
