Caption: Sunghir remains. Illustration depicting the skeletal remains of a human buried in Palaeolithic times at Sunghir, near Vladimir in Russia. The head and the chest are decorated with many ivory beads which were originally sewn onto cloth. This person lived at some time during the Old Stone Age, which lasted in Europe from about 2.5 million to 9000 years ago. At this time people used primitive stone tools made by chipping stones and flints.
