Your Answer: Explanation The mammoth (now extinct)was a huge elephant. The Clovis complex included knives, bone tools, scrapers and the Clovis projectile point. The Clovis was large, leaf shaped and flaked on both sides. Question 24 of 60 The Folsom point was a smaller projectile than the Clovis point and was used to hunt large straight horned bison. Your Answer: Explanation The straight horned bison replaced the mammoth as the major game animal after the mammoth became extinct. Question 25 of 60 The first examples of the Clovis point were found in Clovis, New Mexico in 1929 . Your Answer: Explanation Both the Clovis and Folsom points were found in New Mexico. The Folsom point was first discovered in Folsom, New Mexico in 1927. Question 26 of 60 The Upper Paleolithic Period (beginning about 40,000 years ago) was characterized by the emergence of regional stone-tool industries, such as the Perigordian, Aurignacian, Solutrean, and Magdalenian of Europe, as well as other localized industries of the Old World and the oldest known cultures of the New World. Your Answer: Explanation Principally associated with the fossil remains of such anatomically modern humans as Cro-Magnons, Upper Paleolithic industries exhibit greater complexity, specialization, and variety of tool types and the emergence of distinctive regional artistic traditions.

Question 27 of 60 Small sculptured pieces evidently dominated the Upper Paleolithic artistic traditions of eastern Europe; typical were small, portable clay figurines and bone and ivory carvings. Your Answer: Explanation The works from this area include simple but realistic stone and clay animal figurines, as well as carved stone statuettes of women, referred to by scholars as Venus figures. These small, stylized figures are characteristically rotund, emphasizing parts of the female body associated with sexuality and fertility; many are so abstract that only protuberant breasts and exaggerated hips are clearly distinguishable. Question 28 of 60 Monumental arts flourished in western Europe, the province of the so-called Franco-Cantabrian school, where limestone caves provided a sheltered surface for paintings, incised designs, and relief carvings. Your Answer: Explanation These caves have preserved much small carving of fine quality and an abundant and varied sample of prehistoric graphic art, from simple finger tracings in clay to sophisticated polychrome paintings, generally depicting animals, of dynamic naturalism and exquisite design. Question 29 of 60 The Paleolithic period was everywhere followed by the Mesolithic , a period when man continued to use stone tools, mostly microlithic, and, while still in the hunting-and-gathering stage, depended less for his food supply on large mammals than on fish and mollusks.
