This is what a palaeolithic person day would have been like. The diary entry of a stone age man.
Today we woke up before the sun rose. It started to rain a little before sunrise. The birds looked furious. My newborn son slept like nothing happened. My wife covered him in animal hide. Our condition is still better than Hayjhan. He slept in a small pit with his family. I heard some noise at night, must have been him. He had saved some berries which probably he will not find again.
As the rain stopped, the sun was still nowhere to be seen. Elders performed the ritual and prayed to the skies to protect us. We sacrificed some fruits and gave our finest tools as a gift to the god. The crowd in our band is very less now. There are 22 newborns this year. The daughter of Xjhiraho is still missing. His nephew engraved this scene on the stone along with the horned deity to send his message to the deity. Some of his friends and his family went to search for her daughter.
We have a lot of fruits and plants, thanks to the females of our band, we get a lot of free time these days. It is not too cold these days so we don’t need much hide, leaves provide a much better waterproofing. In the evening, we hunted down a deer and a rabbit. It was a feast for us, friends. My father is old now and he finished a wonderful cleaver today. This is what he do now. My wife had a rest today and we spent a lot of time alone. She made a necklace and wristband for me. Her hands are made for art. Such beautiful beads made of ostrich eggshells. We don’t have much to do these days. Meat will last for tomorrow too.
Our band is planning to migrate. We have spent enough time here. Some people in our band are keeping dogs. I don’t like them. Beasts like them are not good for us. They are to be killed, not to be domesticated. They hardly get a successful hunt because of their dogs, the deer run away, the moment they sense the dogs. 2 women are showing signs of pregnancy. We will perform rituals tomorrow morning for successful childbirth. We have captured 2 birds and a buffalo for sacrifice. An engraving will be made on walls of rock cave by their men as soon as sunlight touches the rock. It is this female goddess that gave us such a beautiful son. She is the mother of fertility and land. We don’t have much to do tomorrow. The elephants are creating a problem these days. May the skies bless us.
