Oraciones de ejemplo
- The Palaeolithic industry of North Africa and southern Europe is noted for its microliths and called Capsian culture, taking its name from the town of Gafsa in Tunisia.
- The Capsian man left, besides the lithic implement, vestiges that betray aesthetic preoccupations.
- In spite of the slightly ambiguous context of discovery, comparative analysis with other Capsian and Neolithic engravings provides a firm suggestion for a chrono-cultural framework.
Early 20th century: from Latin Capsa (now Gafsa in Tunisia), where objects from this culture were found, + -ian.
