Historical Network Research World History Welcome - The Flow of History Stone Age Timelines Human prehistory and the Stone Age… a timeline critique (4th edition - October 2012) by A.O.

Paleolithic (c 2,000,000 – c 10,000 B.C.) The Paleolithic time period is by far the longest, beginning some (circa) two million years ago to coincide with the first evidence of toolmaking and ending around 10,000 B.C. to coincide with the end of the last ice age (Pleistocene epoch). • Lower Paleolithic (two million – 100,000 B.C Mesolithic (c 10,000 – c 5,500 B.C.) Neolithic (c 5,500 – c 2,500 B.C.) This very short Neolithic time period, the last part of the Stone Age, was set-up to cover the period from the onset of farming and ending when metal tools came into widespread use.
