While away the time in your cave with a game of Paleolithic ping pong

The Paleolithic era wasn’t just painting mammoths on cave walls and running screaming from saber-toothed tigers and onrushing glaciers. Inspired by the book Barna Hedenhös by Bertil Almqvist, Swedish builder Sarah demonstrates that it was also important to take time for yourself — to relax and have a good time. The wooden table tennis setup with wooden sticks for the net is adorable, though I question where a pair of Cro-Magnon people got metal frying pans for their paddles. I’m betting it was Doctor Who…

Table tennis a long time ago...

    In the book “Barna Hedenhös reser till Paris”, it’s explained that the family has reached the Bronze Age (literally, by crossing a border in Southern Europe). But, like Flintstones or Asterix, the author Bertil Almqvist was generally pretty lax with historical facts, for instance in the book “Barna Hedenhös i världsrymden”, they’re even visiting Mars in a wooden built rocket, run by Ur-Anium (or possibly better translated as Yore-Anium)
