What does the word ‘Palaeolithic’ mean?



          Do you think that the term ‘Palaeolithic’ sounds complicated? In fact, the word is made up of two parts- ‘Palaeo’ and ‘lithic’, and each part has a meaning. ‘Palaeo’ means old, and ‘lithic’ is derived from the Greek word ‘lithos’, which means stone. The earliest people all over the world are said to belong to the Palaeolithic Age because they used weapons made of stone. You can still see these weapons in many of the museums of the world.
