About the author:
A Georgia native, Scott has made a life-long study of natural and cultural history, and the interconnectedness of the two. This interest in natural science and human technology merged easily with his archaeological training, and in 1987 he began to apply his expertise full-time to the study of Stone-Age skills, ancient technologies and their relation to our lives today. He says: "We need to see ourselves in prehistory. All of our ancestors, regardless of race or geographical origin, were using stone tools just a few thousand years ago. Many of the basic skills were common to everyone."

Scott holds a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Georgia and an Associate Degree in Applied Science from the Community College of the Air Force. He brings almost 20 years of professional experience to the field of primitive technology. Scott is current president of for the Society of Primitive Technology, and is a member of the Georgia Council of Professional Archaeologists, the Society for Georgia Archaeology and is a life member of the Southeastern Archaeological Conference.
