BY FINLAY BEATTY
Old Stone Age Flint was the rock most used for making tools but wood, bone, leather and vegetable fibres were also used. Men were hunter gatherers and used these tools to find food around them. Middle Stone Age Smaller and finer stone tools were made like arrow and spear heads. These were used for hunting and fishing. New Stone Age Tools were still made from stone but different tools were made for harvesting grain.
You can see axe-heads like this in Tavistock Museum. They were found near Bere-Alston. It shows how long people have been living in this area. Stone-age axe heads
Tools and weapons were made out of bronze instead of stone. Bronze is hard and could make better tools and weapons like axes, daggers and ploughs. They even invented wheels! This meant they could look after land and grow food to eat.

Iron was used to make tools and weapons. Iron is tougher than bronze and was used to make sharper objects like spears and swords, which were decorated. We know this as they have been found in graves and bogs. They also made tools for farming like ploughs.
