From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Late Stone Age (LSA) refers to a period in African prehistory that is contemporaneous with the Upper Paleolithic

The LSA follows the Middle Paleolithic beginning about 50,000 years ago. Like the Upper Paleolithic, the LSA is characterized by a much wider variety in stone artifacts than the previous MSA period. These artifacts vary with time and location, unlike MSA technology which appeared to have been in relative stasis for several hundreds of thousands of years. LSA technology is also characterised by the use of bone tools. The LSA is often assoiciated with Modern human behavior.[1]
