1. The Stone Age

1.1. Paleothic

1.1.1. The Palaeolithic Period is the period where humans start to show cultural distribution in technology evolution as the humans/homos started to make tools using stone. However at this period people still seeks for more knowledge as we now know as the"Basic Knowledge" because this period was placed around 2 million years ago.

1.1.2. The Palaeolithic period in Mongolia started in around 2.3 until 10,000 years. The timeline is divided into a total of 3 Palaeolithic which is the Lower Palaeolithic, Middle Palaeolithic and the Upper Palaeolithic. It was said by the mitochondrial (DNA) population genetics study that homos has been spread throughout East Africa, to Eastward and finally East Asia around 4 millennium years ago. It was studied by archaeological study that Mongolia have been civilised for over than 800,000 years ago. The Tsagaan Agyi was the first found relationship or evidence of Mongolia with the lower Palaeolithic time, the information that were gathered is about the vegetation and and evidence of homos lifestyle. The Ice Age happened in about the middle Palaeolithic time and Mongolia has a variety of times in this period. This time happened around 300,000 until 30,000 years The most studied places and evidence about this period was Orhon at Harhorin, Uvur-Hangai, Argalant and Orog Nuur at Bogd, Bayan-Hongor, and Hoid Tsenheriin Agyi at Manhan, Hovd. The final stage is Upper Palaeolithic and also the last period of the ice age. Mongolia has a variety artifacts that csn be relate to this period. You can find large animals bone such as wild horses and cows. According to Social Anthropology the main difference of this period is the appearance of three different types of homos. In addition this period is filled with females and have many female stone artifacts found from Europe and Asia.

1.2. Mesolithic

1.2.1. The Mesolithic is apart of the Stone Age Period after the Palaeolithic Period and before The Neolithic Period. This period focuses more about the migration side. In Mongolia the Mesolithic was the end of Ice age and beginning of our current earth life. All prehistoric animal have died, rain deers migrated to north, many animals and humans migrated to south. Around that time Humans from Central Asia also migrated to North and South America.

1.2.2. In Mongolia the Mesolithic period happened for around 15,000-7,000 years. The Mesolithic was the end of Ice age and beginning of our current earth life. All prehistoric animal have died, rain deers has moved to north, many animals and homos had moved to south. Around that time Homos from Central Asia also had moved away to North and South America.

3. The Metal Age

3.1. Copper Age

3.1.1. The Copper Age, was a period of change from the stone tool in the Neolithic Period to the a civilizations that uses metal tools in the Copper Age. The Copper Age was an event in the eastern Mediterranean regions, and happened in about 3500 to 2300 BCE.
