that reads 'the first men' why not - les premiers humains
This is an accepted translation.
I put "les premiers humaines" and got marked wrong.
Les cro-magnons ?!
Wait, so les hommes can refer to either men as in the male gender, and man as in mankind?
Yes, as in "les droits de l'Homme" (often capitalized with the meaning of "mankind") for human rights.
