Children, teaching and the evolution of humankind

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Social learning is essential for human evolution. To achieve such learning, cultural processes which trigger the development of active teaching and intergenerational transmission and accumulation of knowledge are needed. The understanding of how such systems and processes were developed over a long time is essential for our understanding of human evolution. The identification of children’s learning activities in the archaeological record is crucial for how we may develop this understanding.
