Forget those social studies textbooks filled with dry descriptions of tools and soil samples—author Brian Fagan’s chronicle Cro Magnon reveals the urgency and danger of early human society. Could battling traffic on the 405 and hunting wooly mammoths be any more different—or alike? What do ice age people and modern humans have in common? Is there anything special about homo sapiens society? What about our ability to think and feel? Larry Mantle journeys to the ice age with Brian Fagan.
Brian Fagan will discuss and sign Cro-Magnon tonight at 7pm at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena.
