Thus, a Stone Age tool may be one made by the earliest tool-making man, by a nineteenth-century Australian aborigine, or by a twenti ethcentury Indian of the upp er Amazon; th e implements of each of these tool-makers are the product of a Stone Age culture. Stone Age man made his core, flake, and blade tools by a variety of methods, including percussion ( striking a stone core with a heavy, hand-held hammerstone or with a lighter bone or wooden "baton") ; pr essure flaking (splitting away flakes of stone with a pointed bone or stick ) ; and grinding and polishing.
