The role of sport in human evolution is a topic that has been studied by anthropologists, biologists, and other scholars for many years. While the exact role of sport in human evolution is not completely understood, there are several theories and ideas that have been put forward. You can check to get more info about games.As humans evolved, they developed complex social structures and the ability to work together in groups. Participating in sports and games may have helped to reinforce these social skills and build trust among individuals, which would have been crucial for survival in early human societies.
