Group Info

Palaeolithikum is a paleoart- and prehistory-themed Devianart Group with a heavy focus on the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. The content of the group is more preciously related to topics surrounding human origins, but also include flora and fauna of the Plio-Pleistocene, as well as environmental, climatic, and ecological themes from that span of time. Palaeolithikum is open to anyone with an interest in the topic of human origins research, but artwork submissions are restricted to those that attempt to adhere to a modicum of scientific accuracy (exceptions will be made for artwork that intentionally represents outdated interpretations that have an otherwise historical or cultural significance). Photography is also accepted into this group, but with a preference for examples that contain information about the specific find depicted and/or the species/taxon that is in the photo. Archaeology and palaeoanthropology are serious scientific disciplines, and as such, this group intends to display artwork that respects the methods and theoretical frameworks found in scientific study.

Quick Question: Were any Ice Age peoples of any species able to boil water, and what methods could/did they use?

That's a complicated question, as the act of boiling water is not something that leaves much if any physical traces. I would leave this at we don't really know and for most species (excluding anatomically modern humans), it is highly unlikely that they did. The debate on the controlled use of fire is already a contentious, so there really isn't an answer to this that would please everyone if anyone.

I checked on the admin area for user permissions, but the settings were not disabled for that gallery or the others. Could you try again? Not really sure what to do on my end for now. :/
