(Meso = middle; Lithos = stone)
When the severe ice ages finally came to an end, man hunted small game. Everything that he needed, he took from nature: plants, wood and bone, stone for implements and for weapons, and skins to make clothes.
We have a review of the hunters who roamed through this region after the last ice age. This period was called the Mesolithic. The climate changed and migration of wildlive and plants followed. That these people lived on a varied diet can be deduced from the variety of tools that have been recovered. Fishing was done by means of traps, eel-spears and hooks. Spear, bow and arrow were used to hunt water-fowl.
