  3. 3. Palaeolithic Period Neolithic Period The Metal Age Where do you live? I live in a cave with my tribe. I live in a house made of mud and straw. I live in a small town protected by soldiers. What tools do you use? My dad makes tools by banging stones together to shape them. My mum uses a polished stone to grind cereals. My dad makes tools and weapons from metal. What arts and crafts do you do? We paint the caves with pictures of animals. We make pottery and wool clothes. My mum has some beautiful metal jewellery. What do you eat? My dad hunts and my mum gathers fruit and vegetables. We eat cereals and we have milk from our cows. The farmers grow lots of crops and we have meat too.
