Tardenoisian: see Mesolithic period.
The Tardenoisian is an archaeological culture of the Epipaleolithic period from north-western France and Belgium. Similar cultures are known further east in central Europe (late Mesolithic) and west across Spain.

Characteristic artefacts include trapezoid, chisel-ended arrowheads and small flint blades made by the pressure-technique.

The Tardenoisian is contemporaneous with the Sauveterrian and lasted from about 6500 BC until the Neolithic.
