Hay Home Fire,

Thanks fer tha link. I should a thought of
that.

I think you did not read it just right. It said;

"However, it is believed that this period began
somewhere around 2.5 million years ago with
the first hominid tool makers in Africa, most likely
Australopithecus garhi."

The article goes on to say;

"The transition out of the Stone Age occurred
between 6000 BC and 2500 BC for much of
humanity living in North Africa, Asia and Europe."

But as the article says, many cultures stayed in
tha stone age even into tha 19th and 20th
centuries.

So anything older than 8,000 years is stone aged
for sure.

In the Americas, that would be hundreds of years,
not thousands.

Certainly not 2.5 million years.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

Yep Americans still live in the stone age, especially over in Bedrock. I've heard that some ancient peoples moved along the Glacier line up to just 8000 years ago or so.  We find ancient people who did not work with or use metals are stoneage. When man began to use copper and meteoric metals I guess thats the transition point......

There are three good things about being out of the stone age,

Shot guns, fishing tackle and metal detectors... lol
