This paper is designed to be a study of a Paleolithic flint industry: the Mousterian of Neanderthal man. It is a detailed analysis of the types and styles of flintwork which this early man produced. It will detail tool types, chipping techniques, regional varieties, and outside influences. It will explore the extent to which Neanderthal man worked in gone and how the Mousterian flint forms are mirrored in this other medium. It will shoe how the Mousterian developed and how it was influenced by earlier and contemporary industries.
