Various types of stone tool exhibited in the museum’s prehistory section.

A collection of small and large blades, microliths and denticulate tools from different archaeological sites in the Terres de l’Ebre. Prehistoric implements used for hunting and harvesting wild and cultivated food. What were at first multipurpose implements developed into specific tools for different uses. New knapping and polishing techniques were introduced in the stone industry. The complexity of the new tools meant they often needed wooden handles.
