Several material, article and picture of Pre – History

The three-age system divides human technological prehistory into three periods: the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. The modern periodization of the Stone Age stretches from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic in the following scheme (crossing an epoch boundary on the geologic time scale):

Pleistocene epoch (highly glaciated climate)
Paleolithic age
Holocene epoch (modern climate)
Mesolithic or Epipaleolithic age, Neolithic age, Copper Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age
Historical period (written record begins)
Traditionally, the Paleolithic is divided into three (somewhat overlapping) periods: the Lower Paleolithic, Middle Paleolithic, and the Upper Paleolithic. The three ages mark technological and cultural advances in different human communities.

Lower Paleolithic (c. 2.6 or 2.5 Ma–100 ka)[1][3]
Olduwan culture
Acheulean culture
Clactonian culture
Middle Paleolithic (c. 300 000–30 000 years ago)[11]
Mousterian culture
Aterian culture
Upper Paleolithic (c. 45 000 or 40 000–10 000 years ago).[11]
Châtelperronian culture
Aurignacian culture
Gravettian culture
Solutrean culture
Magdalenian culture
Age Period Tools Economy Dwelling Sites Society Religion
Stone age Paleolithic Handmade tools and objects found in nature — cudgel, club, sharpened stone, chopper, handaxe, scraper, spear, Bow and arrow, harpoon, needle, scratch awl Hunting and gathering Mobile lifestyle — caves, huts, tooth or skin hovels, mostly by rivers and lakes A band of edible-plant gatherers and hunters (25–100 people) Evidence for belief in the afterlife first appears in the Middle Paleolithic or Upper Paleolithic, marked by the appearance of burial rituals and ancestor worship. Priests and sanctuary servants appear in the prehistory.
Mesolithic (known as the Epipalaeolithic in areas not affected by the Ice Age (such as Africa)) Handmade tools and objects found in nature — bow and arrow, fish – basket, boats Tribes and Bands
Neolithic Handmade tools and objects found in nature — chisel, hoe, plough, yoke, reaping-hook, grain pourer, barley, loom, earthenware (pottery) and weapons agriculture Gathering, hunting, fishing and domestication Farmsteads during the Neolithic and the Bronze Age; Formation of cities during the Bronze Age Tribes and the formation of chiefdoms in some Neolithic societies at the end of the Neolithic period’ States and chiefdoms during the Bronze Age.
Bronze Age Copper and bronze tools, potter’s wheel Agriculture — cattle — breeding, agriculture, craft, trade, and Iron Age Iron tools
