Absolutely stunning clip. This was probably what our distant ancestors did. Whenever I hear speculation about “What the cavemen did…” or “How hunter-gathers behave” I wonder, “How do you know? Is this just sheer speculation?”
A few minutes of film like this is worth a shelf-ful of speculative books. What courage these three blokes had. The most tricky bit was walking away with the proceeds of crime. I was amazed that the lions did not go after them. Whew.
Post-glacial Britain had quite a few big mammals and if our ancestors were as bold as this I’m not surprised they are all extinct now.
