The term Paleolithic was created at the end of the nineteenth century. Its ancient Greek etymology refers to the « Old Stone Age », as opposed to the « New Stone Age », which refers to the succeeding Neolithic period. The Paleolithic period begins with the first evidence of human technology (stone tools) more than three million years ago, and ends with the major changes in human societies instigated by the invention of agriculture and animal domestication.
