Caption

Early humans working flint, coloured artwork. Depicted here is the era when flints were being worked and polished, as opposed to the earlier use of rough, unworked fragments of flint. The flints were placed in grooves or hollows in a rock and hammered or rubbed to shape and polish into the required form. This scene is based on archaeological finds made at Pressigny, France, dating to the Neolithic period between 8500 and 4500 years ago. Original artwork published in Primitive Man (Louis Figuier, 1870).
