Is there any evidence whatoever for earl pre-hominid species ever adopting 
the suspicioucly victiorian idea of the noble hunter- gatherer type 
culture that many anthropologists seem to support? Our evolutionary path 
would more likely have developed from scavenger culture. upright stance 
and complex communication in social groups being a definite advantage in 
this type of creature as would binocular vision and tool using.I would 
appreciate any comments on this
