The technological character of the Aterian has been debated for almost a century,  but has until recently eluded definition. The problems defining the industry have related to its research history and the fact that a number of similarities have been observed between the Aterian and other North African stone tool industries of the same date. Bifacial foliates moreover represent a huge taxonomic category and the form and dimension of such foliates associated with tanged tools is extremely varied. Although the term Aterian defines Middle Stone Age assemblages from North Africa with tanged tools, the concept of an Aterian industry obfuscates other similarities between tanged tool assemblages and other non-Aterian North African assemblages of the same date. Instead of elaborating discrete industries, the findings of the comparative study suggest that North Africa during the Last Interglacial comprised a network of related technologies whose similarities and differences correlated with geographical distance and the palaeohydrology of a Green Sahara. The findings are significant because they suggest that current archaeological nomenclatures do not reflect the true variability of the archaeological record of North Africa during the Middle Stone Age from the Last Interglacial, and hints at how early modern humans dispersed into previously uninhabitable environments. This notwithstanding, the term still usefully denotes the presence of tanged tools in North African Middle Stone Age assemblages.

Group Culture Coordinator and Researcher Rukariro Katsande weighs in on the significance of beads in African culture… Part 1 — Materials and Origin Beads are among the most intriguing and important symbols in African culture, past and present. The origin of beads and beadwork in Africa dates back to the beginning of any civilization documented in archaeological history, some say as far as 10, BC.
Material used to make the beads is useful to determine the technological ages, for dating local initiatives as well as foreign contributions to the art form. There has been much dispute as to where the more advanced technologies originated, however ample evidence points to a parallel universal development, and an abundance of natural resources required for the making of for example, glass beads in Africa. In contemporary times beads are also produced from synthetic materials like glass, plastic and alloy metals.
In southern Africa, important historical sites where beads have been found include Mapungubwe in South Africa and Great Zimbabwe just to the north.
