Implements of the Rough Stone Age
Such implements were made by splitting and chipping stones, using another stone as a hammer for this purpose. At the right of this picture a stone knife, in the lower hand, is being shaped by chipping blows struck with the stone in the upper hand.
The rough stone age is also called the Paleolithic, which means Old Stone Age. Most of human life took place during the Paleolithic.
