I saw Cave Of Forgotten Dreams and loved it. Now I want to read more about early human history. Please recommend some good books on the beginnings of human art in particular and the emergence of human society and the beginnings of conciousness in general. I'm not a scientist and I'm not looking for a textbook, but I'm not afraid of a challenging read, either.

What does a paleopathologist actually do? I'm not looking for technical terms, but rather "a day in the life of."
Is there another term for this specialty that can lead to more information about the profession?
