Caption: Homo ergaster hunting group, artist's impression. These hominids are shown attacking a species of saber-toothed cat (Machairdontinae) using wooden branches and a spear. H. ergaster was a skillful hominid, capable of making and using advanced tools such as spears and cleavers, which have been found alongside remains. The evidence of such tools as well as the use of fire, suggests that H. ergaster had advanced skills.
