The story of inventions and discoveries is one of ingenuity and endeavour, the human ability to recognise new potential and the application to turn an idea into reality.
The First Inventions takes the story back to the very beginning - to the earliest use of stone tools and the harnessing of fire. It was these developments that enabled our hunter-gatherer ancestors to people the world.
With the end of the last Ice Age came the beginning of agriculture and a settled way of life, leading to the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia and Egypt. A wealth of tools and technologies emerged in this period, associated with farming, trade and warfare - from boats to bronze, from wheels to writing - and many other innovations and creature comforts that we still enjoy today.
