My first entry using my new machine. Using a touch – screen computer has been an exercise in patience & controlling heaps of irritation. 🙂 That being said, this story is a very interesting little find. Although it may have been a sight more helpful if you were a DIY kind of person or were the village handy – man / tinker type of person. Early tech as a form of currency – I definitely think Bob Vila would approve. Makes me wonder what kind of currency humanity will have in about 200 – 300 – something years. Maybe barter will make a big – time comeback.
Ancient humans traded tools between tribes and they gained social significance.
