I think this is a strong lesson. Getting students into the computer lab and investigating the questions on their own would be very motivating and engaging. I wonder if it would be interesting to students to mention the Biblical significance of this content. You mention Adam and Eve, but you could use the Bible (as a historical book, not teaching religion) as an example of early history and record keeping. Also, it may be interesting to break up each section like a Jigsaw activity.
