Invention of Controlled Fire

Fires were kept alive permanently because of the difficulty of reigniting them, being allowed to burn by day and damped down at night.

Flint struck against pyrites or friction methods were the most widespread methods of producing fire among primitive people.

The first human beings to control fire used it to keep warm, cook their food, and ward off predators.

It also enabled them to survive in regions previously too cold for human habitation.

They also used it in “fire drives” to force animals or enemies out of hiding.

The controlled fire was important in clearing forest for roadways, grasslands for grazing, and agricultural lands-uncontrolled, the fire destroyed the potential of the soil.

Mastering fire also opened up the possibilities of smelting metals, enabling humankind to escape the limitations of the Stone Age.
