Describe the culture of paleolithic hunting- gathering societies?

What i think it is is that most of them or nomads, and that the move around as the afnimals move from pastoral to partoral.

I really need help with this question, maybe more information would be very helpful!!!!!

thank youDescribe the culture of paleolithic hunting- gathering societies?
Nomadic hunter gatherers traveling around in large families or small tribal groups. Sedentary tribes don't seem to make an appearance until grain eating begins in Nubia.

Usually they'll have a winter and a summer camp, and will keep possessions down to a minimum. Functional objects like clothing are often very decorative, and art objects are small and portable. Most nomadic groups tend to have very highly decorated clothing, or wear a lot of jewelery. Europeans appear to have been wearing woven clothing as early as 30,000 years ago, and living a lot like plains Indians did in hide tents, some in caves.

The women in hunter gatherer groups tend to breastfeed until the kid is four or five to reduce their fertility, as you can really only carry one babe in arms at a time.

Hunter gatherer groups tend to have a much lower mortality rate and better nutrition that subsistence farmers, but a lower birth rate.

They don't really clash in large organized battles, although raiding other tribes for women and children was probably common, as it happens in modern hunter gatherer groups. Also, there's very little incentive to crimes like theft, as nobody really 'owns' anything other than a few tools and their clothing.Describe the culture of paleolithic hunting- gathering societies?
They were nomadic tribes, consisting of 30-200 members, all Blood-Type ';O';, with an Alpha Male %26amp; Female as their tribal leaders, and they followed herds of animals that were on their menu...
