Mode 3: Lithic technology involving the production of relatively standardized flake forms through the planned prior shaping of cores i.
Prepared cores are generally not used for tasks other than flake production. So at our present state of knowledge, we cannot yet say if there was an asymmetry between Europe early and Africa late in the appearance of the most diagnostic traits of the respective Neanderthal and modern human clades and see further discussion at the end of this paragraph.
