Lessons from Apes: We have examined ape tool use and hunting behavior and seen that females are involved in tool use, that there may be evidence of cultural variation across chimp populations, and that many human behaviors are simply elaborations on hominoid behaviors. Using lecture materials and the videos in the supplementary materials — answer the following questions.
- What struck you as the most interesting lesson from apes? Why?
- In what way might this impact our interpretation of human behavior in prehistory?
