Can anyone point me to such beasties? The more, the merrier.
Thanks for any help


Maybe this could help you, but not so much; it is the one I have in a hurry.
It is from "Le geste et le parole", by Andre Leroi-Gourhan.
I recommend reading his books, about human industries from Australantropos (4
MYA) to Homo Post Sapiens

Jaca Book, 1984 (édition française).

Le geste et la parole: Technique et langage. Paris: Albin Michel; 1980.

Le geste et la parole: La mémoire et les rythmes. Paris: Albin Michel; 1981.
