Were did homo erectus sleep?

Our evolutionary predecessor Homo Erectus sleeped in a hut and caves.

What types of tools were used with traditional horse hair plaster over wood lathe How does one use these tools to make perfectly smooth walls?

I would assume a simple, but long wooden trowel similar to a mortar trowel, perhaps with some upturned skids at the end so overlapping strokes do not make unwanted marks in the plaster.

I have seen how Indonesian labourers apply cement rendering in Jakarta (live there) many many times- and they get perfectly smooth surfaces with minimal & rather primitive hand tools- so I'd assume the process is very much the same- for both internal and external walls. This has been a construction process here dating back at least 400 years according to one palace restoration foreman.

They 'throw' with moderate force large globules of the render onto the wall 20cm widths at a time, then smooth it immediately over with a mortar trowel- each throw overlapping the next. Once the labourers have roughly attached the render well, another worker with a long straight-edge plank screens over the wall to remove any bumps and detect unwanted dips.

The final labourer uses a string line attached flush with the upper-most )same plane) corner of the wall and uses this plumb line to carefully scrape off excess render as it is maybe 50%+ dry. Final touch up applications are made to the small air bubbles.

Summarily- it can be done- and superbly with simple hand tools- it just requires a lot of patience.

What did Homo erectus use for shelter?

They sometimes used caves as shelters, they often built shelters out of tree branches. With their chopping tools they hacked branches from young trees,

probably trimming off the twigs, and then they poked the branches

into the ground in rough circle, holding them in place by piling rocks

against them. The tops of the branches were probably bent and twisted together so that the finished hut was more or less teepee shaped. Yhe remains of such a hut has been found - the holes made by branches that were pushed into the ground, the rocks that were once piled against these branches, and a circle of stones in the center where a fire was probably kept burning. Despite them building these crude huts, they did not live together in villages, they were nomandic, and traveled around a lot. They would build these wherever the good feeding grounds / food sources took them.

What is the furthest that a human being has ever been from all other human beings?

Umm... the moon? Somewhere in space, I would imagine. Maybe Antarctica or somewhere in the desert if not space.

Improved Answer

The furthest any human being has been from other humans was obviously in outer space! In distances the furtherst measures to just about 238, 855 in miles (english) or 384, 400km (metric).

Hope this helped.

AnswerThe furthest away a single human being has ever been from any other human being are the pilots of the Apollo Command module on the various Apollo moon missions. When the other two astronauts where on the surface of the moon, the single man in the command module was up to 9,000 miles away from the closest human.

What are humans' closest relatives?

It is widely believed that chimpanzees are the closest living relative to humans, with them sharing 96% of the genetic coding we have and likely a common prehistoric ancestor. There has been recent speculation that orangutans may have more physical similarities to humans, but there has not been sufficient genetic research to back this up yet.

Chimpanzees are the closest living relative of humans. Chimps have the best similarities with human beings.They show such great abilities closely resembling human movements. Chimps also feature both physical and mental traits closely resembling Homo Erectus.
Genetically, the closest living relatives to genus Homo(humans) are in genus Pan (chimps and bonobos).
the closest animal to modern human is cro-magnon man whom of which was basically a smart monkey.

How did the study of archaeology begin?

This is a good guide: http://pb-archaeology.blogspot.com/2008/04/how-did-archaeology-start-as-field-of.html

However archaeology as a "profession" began much later after an increased interest in the Victorian times.

It is only very recently that more and more rules are being put in place to protect artifacts of the past.

What is the history of man's evolution?

It is the opinion of many that man did not evolve.

AnswerSee links for a good start. If you have some extra money send away for a genome kit and see what your genes tell you about your ancestry. Evolution is a body of accumulated knowledge and the theories that have been developed to explain that knowledge. It is a work in progress, and work is continually being done. The best approach is to remain open-minded about this knowledge, and also about other ways to explain the existence and diversity of life on earth. Study and think, and consider science to be a process that is sometimes messy and confusing. Science does not happen the way it may be presented in most texts, with all the facts, experiments and conclusions lined up neatly with review questions and class projects carefully outlined. It is human, dangerous and indispensible.

Which country do the Maori people originate from?

The Maori are the native people of New Zealand.

Maori come from New Zealand. The spiritual homeland for Maori is Hawaiiki. No one is really sure about where this place is but there are many theories of where it might be.

The Maori people are most certainly the "Tangata Whenua" or the native race of New Zealand.

There are Tangata Whenua/ Maori Iwi groups whose whakapapa indicate that they are native to Aotearoa. These same Tangata Whenua do not have any history of migrating from another place to this whenua. They have always been in Aotearoa.

The simple truth is though, no one has yet come up with any proof positive where Maori came from, so the consider themselves indigenous to New Zealand.

The closest relative to modern humans?

According to scientists, the closest relative to modern humans is monkeys; since humans supposedly evolved from monkeys.

What tools do you use for raccoon hunting?

Is that true that men like BBW in many countries On pluscupid.com forums I saw a topic that men in lots of countries love BBWs. Is it true that fullfigured women are so attractive to men?

Of course--the same way some people like shorter people, some people prefer a certain hair color or even a certain ethnicity. Some cultures prefer women (and men) to have certain physical attributes; there are even cultures who find the "supermodel" type of female to be unappealing.

Most people generally have a physical 'type' that they personally find desirable; not everyone wants a thin white person.

How can you build a relationship with your mother if you are a boy who likes to dress up in women's clothing?

Well, this might be a challenge or to your surprise it could be easier than you think. I am sure your Mother already has an inkling that you might have been doing this for a while. (You do not say how old you are so this could change my answer). I am guessing that you are still living at home (under the age of 20?). With all the info and "new" accepting attitudes surrounding us today, I am certain you could show your Mom an article about cross dressing and then start "fishing" for her opinion on the subject. Most people seem "harsh" when first confronted with a trait that is not deemed "normal" but.... most people also warm to any character trait that makes the other person HAPPY. This is a fact. You will be accepted. Start talking. Risk being yourself.There is a huge amount of support available. The reason you will get though this is because of UNCONDITIONAL love... From your Mom to you!.
