Caption: Early use of fire. Illustration of a tribe of Homo erectus using fire to make spears. Also seen in the image, at centre left, are a male and female Homo erectus skinning a deer-like creature. At far left are two hunters returning with another kill. The name Homo erectus translates to "erect man". The erect standing Homo 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.
