Oldowan - NW Europe - m) Jabeekian pebble tools, Netherlands

Comment: Attributed to microlithic of the Chopper-Chopping Tool Complex (micro-CCC). Cromerian dating, c. 500,000-800,000 by geological profile, Archaeologische Berichten 19:81-82. However a more recent dating to the Holsteinian, c. 400,000 BP is argued in Peeters, H., Musch, J., Wouters, A. (1988). Les plus anciennes industries des Pays-Bas. L'Anthropologie 92,2:683-710.
