acheulian



acheulian defined in 1939 year

acheulian - Acheulian;
acheulian - Middle period of the lower palaeolithic age in Europe, when the warm Chellian was followed by a colder climate. Human remains are scarce, but in 1935 a skull dating from Acheulian times was found at Swanscombe. The flint industry developed greatly, the boucher, or hand-axe, becoming finer, even-edged, ovate, and then pointed, and the flakes themselves utilized. The period was first studied at St. Acheul, on the Somme—whence the name. The stations extend from England, e.g. Wolvercote and Hoxne, across Central Europe to Poland.
