← Quest for Fire Began Earlier Than Thought

On the subject of portable fire, my impression has always been that it means glowing embers in a pot, rather than a torch, which could too easily be dropped, or blown out by the wind. By the way, the National Film Board of Canada, which has always been great on animation, some years ago produced a very funny cartoon called "Hot Stuff" about the origin of fire, as part of a campaign to encourage fire safety. I don't know if it's anywhere on DVD, but it should be.
