The greatest gift that Mother Nature gave to mankind is rapid oxidation or fire. Fire is a crucial human advantage. Any kind of sociality began with a cooking of meat over flame. Our ancestors from hundreds of thousands years ago will regularly encounter natural sources of fire. They were experimenting with them. Bringing wrestles, curious, adventure species Homo erectus was hominid species who invented fire. Actually they didn’t invent it. They were just primitive humans who discovered fire accidentally. To know how exactly discovery of fire was made we will write a story taken from a movie “A Species Odyssey”. If you are lazy to read so at the end is the short and clear answer “when was fire discovered”. Homo erectus will make a discovery that will change his entire life.
One morning while hunting the mammoth the one-eyed hunter speeds up to the head of the others. The one-eyed hunter curious… a little too curious sometimes which cost him an eye. No one knows how erectus tame fire although instinctively he knows to avoid it. He goes forward anyway. Since this one is rather small he has to see it up-close if he can kill it. The rest of his clan hangs back fearful. As far back as anyone can remember the orange beast has always been destructive.
When was fire discovered?
After being poked the beast it follows him with some small part of it on the end of the spear. Everyone tries to warn him but he doesn’t see it at first. After he saw it, he kills it easily by staging the spear in to the ground. It’s a mystery. Without a word to anyone the wise men of the clan goes forward to see for himself. Wise man is usually very careful but his curiosity much bigger than his fear. He is the first who understand that the animal is not really all that dangerous. It can be controlled. But get to close and it will hurt. It also leaves a distinctive odor on his hand if he touches it. That time was the time when was fire invented. Homo erectus overcome their fear and adds fire to their toolbox. It will still take time to work out how to use it.
Supposedly 1.5 million years ago fire was discovered by Homo erectus. Invention of fire was the most overturn in human life and that’s why we are here.
