Notes: High quality content by Wikipedia articles! Along with stone, mud and animal parts, wood was certainly one of the first materials worked by primitive human beings. Microwear analysis of the Mousterian stone tools used by Neanderthals show that many were used to work wood. The development of civilization was closely tied to the developement of increasingly greater degrees of skill in working these materials. Among early finds of wooden tools are the worked sticks from Kalambo Falls, Clacton-on-Sea and Lehringen. The spears from Schoningen provide some of the first examples of wooden hunting gear. Flint tools were used bor carving. Since Neolithic times, carved wooden vessels are known, for example, from the Linear Pottery culture wells at Kuckhofen and Eythra. Examples of Bronze Age wood-carving include tree trunks worked inot coffins from northern Germany and Denmarkand wooden folding-chairs. The site of Fellbach-Schmieden in Germany ahs provided fine examples of wooden animal statues from the Iron Age. Wooden idols from the LaTene period are know from a sancturary at the source of Seine in France.
