“The control of fire would have been a major turning point in human evolution,” says anthropologist Michael Chazan, co-director of the project and director of University of Toronto’s Archaeology Center. “The impact of cooking food is well documented, but the impact of control over fire would have touched all elements of human society. Socializing around a camp fire might actually be an essential aspect of what makes us human.” -Daily Galaxy
