Paleolithic means "Old Stone Age" and neolithic means"New Stone Age

== == The difference between the palaeolithic communities and the neolithic communities is that the palaeolithic communities has to do with the early part of Stone age(the very early period of human history when tools and weapons were made of stone)while the neolithic communities is connected with the latter part of the Stone age.

The Paleolithic Era is the Old Stone Age. The Neolithic Era is the new stone age. "paleo" means old, and "neo" means new. "lithic" means stone age.

Paleolithic humans are basically cave men. Neolithic people are people from the stone age.

Neolithic was a time people started making tools & trading .... Paleolithic era was the old stone age when people hunt & gathered !!

Paleolithic refers to the Old Stone Age period of time, whereas neolithic refers to the New Stone Age period of time, which came afterwards.

The neolithic age was the one when neolithic weapons were used. It was a part of the stone age also.

the difference is that in the paleolithic age they used simple stone tools.

the transition from the use of stone to metal was slow and gradual.people learn to use copper,gold, silver and finally Europe,the neolithic age was followed by the bronze age,but in India it was not north India,people switched to copper from stones for making axes,spears etc.this period after the neolithic age when copper was used along with tiny stone implements is termed as Chalcolithic age.neolihic age means new stone age

it is diffrent because the paleolithic era is the old stone age the mesolitic era is called the middle stone age the neolithic era is called the new stone age

paleolithic means the old stone age and neolithic means new stone age.paleo = oldneo = newlithic =stone

Because it is that old stone age and Neolithic it's the new stone age

The Neolithic time period or the Neolithic Age.

People from the Stone Age (Neolithic age, Paleolithic Age, etc.) lived in Mesopotamia the land between, The Euphrates River, and The Tigris River.

The Neolithic age was also known as the New Stone Age. It was called Neolithic because people in that age were still using stone tools, but were using them in upgraded and different ways.

The Neolithic Age is the end of the Stone Age. People in the Paleolithic age did not live in permanent housing. People in the Neolithic age began to settle down in permanent structures and farm.

The main difference is the fact that weapons and tools were made of stone in the Stone Age, and bronze in the Bronze Age.

New Stone Age was known as Neolithic People . Old Stone Age People were known as Paleolithic people .

The paleolithic era is thought to have ended about 20,000 years ago, when the neolithic era began; the greatest difference between these two parts of the stone age is that agriculture was introduced, which made a profound difference in the way people lived.

the Old Stone Age, or Paleolithic Age, and the New Stone Age, orNeolithic Age.

The new stone age is Neolithic, the middle stone age is Mesolithic, and the old stone age is called Paleolithic.

The Neolithic followed the Paleolithic Period, or age of chipped-stone tools, and preceded the Bronze Age, or early period of metal tools. A brief treatment of the Neolithic Period follows. For full treatment, see Stone Age: Neolithic and technology: The Neolithic Revolution.

the new stone age is Neolithic, the middle stone age is Mesolithic, and the old stone age is called Paleolithic.

in Paleolithic fire was not discovered so they ate raw food and in neolithic FIRE was discovered so they ate cooked food so this is the difference between paleolithic and neolithic
