The Paleolithic age is classified as the first known age of man.  Little is known about the age, but archaeologists speculate that man lived in a hunting-gathering society during this period.  In effect, then, groups of people survived by hunting animals and gathering roots, berries, and fruit.  These clans probably had no permanant homes, but rather moved throughout a range or territory, following animal herds.  Burial proceedures indicate that Paleolithic peoples had an established system of religion.  Two major artifacts survive from this period: The Lascaux Cave Paintings and  Venus of Willendorf
