The influence of the Palolithic is much stronger, especially in the case of the microlithic tardenoisian types.
The tardenoisian people, if their culture was carried by a distinct people, may represent an early wave.
The new industries are known as the tardenoisian, the Azilian, and the Maglemosian.
After this discovery it could no longer be questioned that the Azilian and tardenoisian were contemporary.
The tardenoisian culture had spread northward from the Mediterranean.
Thus the Azilian bone-harpoon industry, like the tardenoisian microlithic flint industry, was largely pursued by fisherfolk.
Another culture, the tardenoisian, was of exceedingly wide range.
It is possible that the Azilian, tardenoisian, and Maglemosian peoples had made considerable progress in the art of navigation.
The triangular flint (Fig. 249) is certainly the most ancient tardenoisian type.
These are the Azilian, the tardenoisian, and the Maglemosian.
