Man and Fire

A truly wonderful story that began one and a half million years ago.

Why fire makes us human? Fire control changed the course of human evolution.

At first, fire was just to be found close to volcanos. Little by little, our ancestor started to understand how to tame it. Slowly, hearths became fireplaces, that became firewood stoves.

Fire helped us stay warm in the cold, enhanced the nutritional value of food and kept predators at bay, among other uses.
