This story is set in the small lakes of Colbricon, in the Lagorai. Here, about 11,000 years ago, Mesolithic hunters camped during the summer to locate prey, work skins and make weapons and tools. Half-moon and triangle-shaped flint fragments were inserted into arrow shafts to make them more effective. Agriculture and animal husbandry were still unknown, but we know that the wolf was the first animal domesticated by humans. The first contacts between humans and wolves date back to the end of the last Ice Age.
