Continuation of our Paleo course played by the whole Kepinski clan! Today I taught them the techniques of fire obtaining. My trainees are 7, 12, 15, and 40 years old. It's a very good age group, showing especially that everyone can make their own prehistoric fire.

I bought this book in Les Eyzies de Tayac ( Dordogne - France ), at the beginning of the 2000s for 22€. It is in very poor condition, but I don't mind. I still give it a score of 10/10 because this book, which comes from Czechoslovakia, speaks of all European prehistory.
