Primitive Man possessed highly developed muscles, able to give rise to a remarkable strength. So he was strong enough to break the branch of a tree and reduce it to the desired size, but could not perform this work only with hands, nails and teeth. Needed something more sturdy, who had a hand cutting and sharp: an ax or a saw, for example. He had the strength to break a stone, but if I tried to do with his fists, hands hurt. Needed, therefore, a hammer. Could injure a deer with a pointed piece of wood, but this animal was too fast to be achieved. Hence, the need for a weapon that could hit him from afar: a bow and an arrow.
Man needed, then the instruments and tools that have been built little by little. This was the first activity that distinguished him from other animals.
In order to fend off enemies and perfect their instruments man met in tribes.
Using the principle of wood and stones, after bones, skin and nerves of animals, he fabricated gradually numerous objects that served as advocacy tools as weapons in hunting and as tools in making shelters. And every utensil invented allowed him to perfect the other.
The simple bat, used in the early days, the man came to manufacture and this hoe left for the invention of the plow. The plow was certainly the most important invention for agriculture. The observation that the strength of the animals could be used in the traction was very useful to humans.
The plow once more has been improved and is now drawn by oxen, thus facilitating the cultivation of larger tracts of land. Plow was a very simple, made with forked branches, to which the man said later a triangular stone and sharp at the tip. Over time, other inventions increased exploration of the environment. So he was able to fish more efficiently, could plow and sow the land could enjoy vegetable fibers, wires and cords getting them and also making some rustic fabrics.
