Mousterian and
Clactonian Stone Tools
The pieces on this page represent stone tools used by later hominids such as Neanderthal man  (Palaeolithic / paleolithic
in age). Their use is still obvious and when handled you instinctually orient them in your hand for the best fit - just like the
hominid that originally made them. Artifacts of this age are very thought provoking as they provide a link to the past that
everyone can understand and relate to (the desire to find something heavy to hit something with - nowadays usually a
construction nail, a million years ago who knows!).

All stone tools are shown next to a penny for scale (the penny measure 20mm / 0.75 inches wide). Please order using
the  reference number (found in parentheses) that is within each listing.

Mousterian is a name given by archaeologists to a style of predominantly flint tools associated primarily with Homo
neanderthalensis
and dating to the Middle Paleolithic, the middle part of the Old Stone Age. Mousterian tools that have
been found in Europe were made by Neanderthals and date from between 300,000 BP and 30,000 BP. In Northern Africa
and the Near East they were also produced by anatomically modern humans.
The Clactonian is the name given by archaeologists to an industry of European flint tool manufacture that dates to the
early part of the interglacial period known as the Hoxnian, the Mindel-Riss or the Holstein stages (c. 400,000 years
ago). Clactonian tools were made by Homo erectus rather than modern humans. The term is sometimes applied to
early, crude flint tools from other regions that were made using similar methods.
