Skeat and Blagden (1906:248), although recognizing that they made certain limited uses of stone, concluded that the aborigines belonged to a "wood and bone age" rather than to the stone age, an assessment shared by Schebesta (1954-1957:134), who refers to the Semang and Senoi as "living in the Wood Age."
