This topic covers a wide range of actual skills. Primitive living cannot be called a skill in itself, but instead it must be understood that at no time in human history have people been a solitary species. We are a pack animal, we need a clan to survive. The skills necessary to meet the needs of a person are best performed by a people.
The basic needs of wilderness living, are shelter, fire, water, and food, and self expression, in that order. These needs are guided by 2 basic principles. Those of Connection and awareness. These last 2 items are the keystone, they are the parts that hold the whole thing together. Without a keen sense of awareness, awareness of your self, your situation, and your surroundings, and without a strong sense of connection to nature, to yourself,and to your community, you have no chance.
So lets get learning.

Primitive Food Preservation ,Survival Techniques Harvesting And Supplys
Food preservation has its roots way back to 12.000 B.C.
Sun drying was a dominant food preservation method during the prehistoric period. Simply put, items were left in the sunshine to dry. Folks at that time used sun drying as a method of food conservation but it didn’t guarantee longevity. This method depended solely on nature, which couldn’t provide an effective way of preserving food.
It is one of the earliest methods used by prehistoric man to preserve his food. It began in the arid and semi-arid areas around 12.000 bc and has been used to dry large quantities of foodstuffs and fruits such as figs.
