The Stone Age, which happened some 2.6 million years ago, was a time when humans were using stone tools. It was when the earth’s temperatures are a lot colder and the wild were unforgiving. Humans shared this period with Neanderthals, a species of early human beings, plus a whole host of prehistoric flora and fauna, which includes giant ground sloths, saber-toothed cats, and mastodons.
Stone Age humans didn’t just use stone for their tools and weapons. They also crafted things out of ivory and bones. The earliest discoveries of art and writings during the Stone Age were found in Asia, Africa, and Europe. One of them is an ivory sculpture of a woman with exaggerated features. Petroglyphs, or stone/rock carvings, that are about 40,000 years old were also found in every continent around the world.
