3 million years

We stood erect
homo erectus -

... for more than three million years and made not one tool. Nor did we make fire. We made babies, no doubt, but perhaps not so many, dying in child-birth as we HE women would surely have done in great numbers.

Finally, we made a tool. Not long after that, maybe a few thousand years, we made fire. Then we were away!
