Prehistory means "before history".

It refers to the period of human existence before recorded history. In other words, before the invention of  writing systems.

On this project, we will learn how humans lived before they could record their lives on written documents.

That´s why archaeologists are so important. They study past human activity by excavating, dating and interpreting objects and sites of historical interest. 

Prehistory is divided into three different periods:

Paleolithic             Neolithic                Metal Ages
