This story is set in the small lakes of Colbricon, in the Lagorai. Here, around 11,000 years ago, Mesolithic hunters camped during the summer to spot prey, work the skins and make weapons and tools. Flint fragments in the shape of crescents and triangles were inserted into the shafts of arrows to make them more effective. Agriculture and animal husbandry were still unknown, but we know that the wolf was the first animal domesticated by man. The first contacts between man and wolves date back to the end of the last ice age.
