The Museum of Antiquities
The Museum of Antiquities at the University of Newcastle in northeast England has opened a virtual gallery to display Flints and Stones: Real life in prehistory, an exhibit on the Late Stone Age hunter gatherers of Britain and northwest Europe. This colorful electronic exhibition is full of interesting information about Stone Age peoples: what they ate, how they lived, and more, as well as pictures of their tools, paintings, and other artifacts.
