Why would progress in Prehistoric Medicine have been slow?

Select one or more of the following:

  • Excavations of ancient burials and tombs tell us that their ideas on anatomy where not right in more than one way, so that hindered the production of Prehistoric medicine

  • Because there was no writing, so that obviously hindered any progress

  • Because people didn't use plants to try to cure disease at all, they only prayed to God, which obviously hindered medicine

  • People travelling mostly in the summer and not in the winter, so idea where only spread here and there and people tend to get more ill in the winter, so that would have made the progress in medicine slow because it meant that people couldn't really share ideas in the winter as well as they could in the summer.
