A \(400,000\)-year-old shelter in Terra Amata, France, offered security for an early human family or social group. At this location, scientists discovered post holes and other signs of multiple shelters. Some of the shelters measured up to \(14.9\) metres in length.
Here, scientists discovered fossil human faeces. They have pollen from plants that bloom in late spring and early summer, suggesting when humans inhabited the shelters.
Constructing Social Networks:
Humans started engaging with social groups that were different from their \(130,000\) years ago. By \(130,000\) years ago, \(300\) kilometre-distance communities were sharing resources. Social networks have continued to grow in size and complexity. People today rely on one another for knowledge and products from all over the world.
Modern humans are members of a variety of societies that promote sharing and cooperation, often among strangers. These partnerships enrich our lives by encouraging us to share skills and survival risks. They may also cause severe disputes between members of various groups.
