Technical activities in Gabillou’s time

Despite the thousands of years that have passed, it is possible to understand certain technical activities such as the manufacture of prehistoric tools thanks to archaeological remains. Whether they are made of flint or bone, these tools are the result of a complex and methodical manufacturing process: collection of materials, cutting of the raw material into blades or sticks which are then reworked into functional tools. During the Magdalenian, these tools were scrapers, chisels, drills for flint and assegai, punches and needles for bone.
