This paper presents an overview of the use of Proboscidean remains in every day Palaeolithic life, in an attempt to illuminate some aspects of the relationship between Proboscideans and humans during the Palaeolithic from an archaeological perspective. A short survey of the evidence is given, focussing on the associations of lithic tools and Proboscidean remains and the utilisation of Proboscidean remains to produce bone tools, objects of art and personal decoration and dwellings. The evidence is compiled and general trends in the archaeological record are outlined.
