Stillbay (Sub-Saharan African Middle Stone Age periods, prehistoric Sub-Saharan African periods, ... Styles and Periods (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Refers to a Late Paleolithic stone tool culture that flourished from Ethiopia southward to the eastern coast of South Africa from about 50,000 to 30,000 Before Present. It is often compared to the Mousterian industry of North Africa and Europe, and is characterized by leaf-shaped bifacial points and lance heads or skinning knives made by the Levallois stone-flaking technique of shaping a prepared core in order to produce pointed flakes.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 指舊石器時代晚期的石器文化,距今約五萬至三萬年前,在衣索匹亞往南至南非東部海岸一帶蓬勃發展。該文化時常被拿來與北非和歐洲的穆斯特工藝作比較。其特色是葉形的雙面尖器,以及由勒瓦婁哇(Levallois)打製石片技術製成的矛頭或剝皮刀等,此技術是將預備好的石核塑形,以便打出尖利的石片。 
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar een laat Paleolithische cultuur die stenen werktuigen produceerde, en die voorkwam van Ethiopië zuidwaarts tot aan de oostkust van Zuid-Afrika. De cultuur had haar bloeitijd tussen 50.000 en 30.000 jaar geleden, wordt vaak vergeleken met de Moustérien-productieVan Noord-Afrika en Europa, en kenmerkt zich door bladvormige, tweezijdige punten en speerpunten of vilmessen gemaakt volgens de Levallois steensplijt-techniek om een geprepareerd stuk vuursteen te bewerken tot puntige scherven. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere a una cultura fabricante de herramientas de piedra del paleolítico tardío que floreció desde Etiopía hacia el sur a la costa oriental de África del Sur alrededor del 50.000 al 30.000 a.C. Se compara a menudo a la industria musteriense de África del Norte y Europa y se caracteriza por puntas y cabezas de lanza bifaciales en forma de hoja o cuchillos para descuerar hechos por la técnica levosiona de laminar la piedra de trabajar un centro preparado para producir lascas con filos cortantes.
