The Paleolithic Period is an ancient era of human progress known for the development and use of chipped and flaked stone tools that range from rudimentary to more difficult depending on the culture and area where it was found. In North America, the accepted general dates by scholars fall in a range of 15,000-10,000BCE and the kinds of simple tools include items shaped by pounding stone to produce tools creating an edge to serve as a chopping blade, stone scrapers, cleavers, spears and points. Finds from this period also include limited numbers small stone sculptures of women, clay animal figures, bone and ivory carvings and incised designs and paintings on stone walls and in caves.
