Upper Paleolithic (40,–13, BP) Anatomically modern Homo sapiens (abbreviated AMH) entered Europe during the Upper Paleolithic from Africa by way of the Near East; the Neanderthal shared Europe and parts of Asia with AMH (that is to say, with us) until ab years ago.

Bone and stone tools, cave art and figurines, and language developed during the UP (although. On the basis of those valuable evidences, the tool-making traditions of the Lower Palaeolithic in Western Europe can be divided into two groups, such as Hand-axe traditions and Flake traditions basically the Hand-axe traditions contained the core tool cultures while the flake traditions consisted with the flake tool cultures.
