Here we have a fine female specimen of the Aterian culture, a Paleolithic culture which thrived in northern Africa from 145,000 to 30,000 years ago. They would have been Homo sapiens (or anatomically modern humans), and the material culture they left behind is characterized by distinctive tangs on their stone tools and the use of shell "beads" for personal ornamentation. You can see one example of a tanged Aterian point as the centerpiece of this chick's necklace.
