 The Neolithic people adopted a new method of fashioning their larger stone weapons. In the Palæolithic and Mesolithic periods, flint implements were shaped by flaking and chipping, a method which continued into the succeeding ages, but Neolithic man made the discovery that very hard stones such as granite and greenstone could be made into a required shape by grinding or rubbing with a very hard sandstone. The new method gave a very smooth and polished surface to the finished article. one time it was thought that all "​polished"​ stone implements were of Neolithic origin, but it is now known that later peoples used the same technique so that we cannot say definitely that the "​polished"​ stone axes found locally belong to the Neolithic Age. (Fig. 1 and Appendix.) \\ The Neolithic people adopted a new method of fashioning their larger stone weapons.

 Near both the Lancashire and Yorkshire ends of the Long Causeway, Bronze Age settlements existed: burial sites are numerous, and both bronze and flint implements have been found on or very near to the suggested route. Even if it is disputed that the Long Causeway was originally a main track between the west and the east of Northern England, at any rate it served to connect the Worsthorne and Todmorden groups of Bronze Age settlers. \\ Near both the Lancashire and Yorkshire ends of the Long Causeway, Bronze Age settlements existed: burial sites are numerous, and both bronze and flint implements have been found on or very near to the suggested route.

 The people of the early Iron Age are known as Celts and are the same people whom in our schooldays we called "the Ancient Britons"​ Most unfortunately there is nothing to show that they ever lived in Lancashire. Experts tell us that during this period the climate was wet, so that the low-lying lands were almost impassable and the uplands were covered with bogs: In these conditions life in this district would be almost intolerable. In the limestone districts round Settle and Grassington,​ however, many Celtic villages have been discovered, and in the shallow pits which formed the huts, pottery and ornaments have been found \\ The people of the early Iron Age are known as Celts and are the same people whom in our schooldays we called "the Ancient Britons"​ Most unfortunately there is nothing to show that they ever lived in Lancashire.
