Caption: Early human warfare. Coloured artwork of early humans fighting each other in the Stone Age using wooden clubs and bows and arrows. This battle is taking place in and around a fortified position. This artwork is based on studies of fortified Stone Age camps, such as the one found at Furfooz, in Belgium. A defendable position was surrounded by a wall of stones piled on top of each other. During the battle, the stones would be pushed (upper right) onto the enemy below. Furfooz, like other Stone Age fortified camps, was later used by the Romans. Original artwork published in Primitive Man (Louis Figuier, 1870).
