Man’s First War


Man’s first war is a journey in pursuit of the first war of humans. At the same time it’s an investigation into one of the great riddles in human evolution. Is war in our blood? Or are we the children of a peace loving hippie primate? Scientists that examine the origin of war are puzzled. Human history seems to be a long unbroken chain of brutal wars. But beyond a given point in time there are no traces of organised violence. This is an unsolved mystery.

Man’s first war is a journey through the history of mankind to search for the heart of darkness. To the place and time where scientists believe that war began.
