Transcript of Paleolithic Time Period (500,000 BC-10,000BC)

Paleolithic Time Period (500,000 BC-10,000BC)
By: Nick Cianfaglione and Gabby Martin

Paleolithic Age
The Paleolithic Age was between 500-000-10,00 BC
It was the beginning of advancements in technology
Cover roughly 99% of human technology in prehistory
Split into three different periods
Lower Paleolithic Age
Middle Paleolithic Age
Upper Paleolithic Age

Lower Paleolithic
Middle Paleolithic
Upper Paleolithic
Fun Facts
The End
BY: Gabby and Nick
Humans started to use a variety of stone tools
Hand Axes, Choppers, Shelters, Rafts, hammer stones, large cutting tools,etc.

Hammer Stones
To make Hammer stones you grab two rocks and hit them together (knapping).
One will become a flake
Sharp, piece or rock
The other rock will become a hammer stone
The original Germanic term "knopp" meant strike, shape, or work.
Used to manufacture stone tools
LCT'S (large cutting tools)
These tools were large and flattened
Made from large flakes
human species from an apelike creature, or near human, to true Homosapiens
due to advancement int tools humans started to evolve as well

Earliest evidence of jewelry, small razor-like geometric flakes, and sophisticated compound tools
Fire become common
discovered in lower paleolithic period however started to become common in this age
Miniature hand axes
& elongated picks

created from flakes
made from "hafting technique"

bow and arrow, net, and blades
geometric microliths
The former yields a series of elongated cutting edges; the latter returns, in effect, a number of disposable razors.
Either could be embedded along the working edge of a spear, harpoon, or knife.
Animal Bones
key raw material in artifact design and manufacture: often coupled with new to
fish hooks, harpoon tips, and tiny sewing needles
cave paintings, bone flutes, carved figurines, and necklaces made of shells, bones, and teeth
greater shifts toward advancement in technology and tools (spear, flakes, etc.)
caused the human body to evolve
covers roughly 99% of human technological prehistory
First material evidence of human technology
early humans used wooden spears as early as five million years ago to hunt small animals
Paleolithic technologies accompanied us on our migrations out of Africa

advancement caused humans to be more secure and population to grow
humans evolved to more human-like
more effiecent and easier to get food and sustain life
