Back to the Stone Age


Just amalgamating a few additional sources on the subject of prehistoric roleplaying accumulating over the past months.


Inuksuk and Inunnguaq - stone markers used by certain Arctic cultures:

"something which acts for or performs the function of a person"

"...from the morphemes inuk ("person") and -suk ("ersatz" or "substitute")"



Re-reading the Scara Brae wikipedia entry I realized that in my youth I'd actually read a story about the place:

The Boy With The Bronze Axe - Middle grade fiction. Was an ok read as I recall. Nothing overwhelmingly inspiring, but did provide a slice of life regarding the place and time.



Land of Nod recently published this blog entry.  A nice addition to the field.



Also, in the comments of Mr. Stater's entry, a commenter named Sean pointed out this article with a police lineup of some of our more interesting hominid kin.
