According to scientists, Peking man, a type of man living about 300,000 years ago, was the first cave dwellers. Early man lived by hunting. Each man was his own toolmaker. With a hammer stone he broke large pebbles until they were of the proper size for grasping. The resulting tool was a crude chopper, with one end slightly sharpened to make a rough cutting edge. Choppers could be used for digging, scraping, hacking and cutting.

Other common early tools were crude hand axes. One end formed a heavy butt for grasping. The other end was chipped on both sides to a rounded or pointed tip. Hand axes were probably all purpose tools, useful for digging up roots, cracking nuts or cutting up dead animals.

Neanderthal man, who lived from about 150,000 to 300,000 years ago, was a real cave dweller. In addition to hand axes, Neanderthal man had flake tools. These were skilfully made of broad thin flakes of flint having a good sharp edge. They used it as knives for skinning and cutting up game animals.
