The earliest stone toolmaking developed by at least 2.6 million years ago.It and the Acheulean toolkit were made for an immense period of time – ending in different places by around 400,000 to 250,000 years ago. What we call the ‘later prehistory’ in Britain and Ireland traditionally spans the first use of metal artefacts and thereafter the replacement of bronze technologies with iron, an overall period of approximately two and a half millennia which starts around 2500 BC and, by academic convention, is said to end with the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43 (which brings in the a series of hitherto missing documentary sources for the historian and hence is deemed to be roughly the end of ‘prehistory’ where our evidence is largely archaeological), spanning the chronological periods.These tools and other kinds of ‘large cutting tools’ characterize the Acheulean toolkit.The basic toolkit, including a variety of novel forms of stone core, continued to be made.Hoards, defined loosely as two or more objects deposited together, that are often treated in special and unusual ways prior to deposition (for instance swords may be intentionally bent and ornaments folded and broken up).

The Bronze Age chronologies are notoriously complex, but here is a table summarising the main developments by period: From around 1500 BC, the evidence for the contexts in which we find metal objects changes from burials to ‘hoard’ deposits.

Most of the archaeological evidence for the earlier part of the period (c.2500 to 1500 BC) comes from funerary evidence and monuments and there is little evidence for permanent settlements of any size or scale.

This may suggest that communities and populations were still relatively small-scale by comparison with later periods.

Anthropology is the study of mankind's behaviour and origins, and asides from studying bones and fossils, it also studies the ancient architecture, tools and artwork mankind left behind.

Very few art pieces stand the test of time and only the toughest sculptures and paintings made with plenty of pigment (and presumably sheltered from the elements) have managed to last tens of thousands of years.

It predates writing, printmaking and basically encompasses the genesis of both early sculpture and painting.
