Caption: Early use of fire. Illustration of Homo erectus using fire to cook meat. At upper right, a Homo erectus man is igniting a stick from a tree that has been struck by lightning. This could be the way that man learnt to harness fire. The name Homo erectus translates to "erect man". The erect standing H. erectus stood 1.68 metres tall, perhaps more. Living 1.8 million years to 200,000 years ago, it was the first human type to spread from Africa to Asia. They had a mixed diet and were nomadic hunter-gatherers.
