The first settlers arrived at the Pulli settlement in Pulli village 10,000 to 11,000 years ago. It is the most unique settlement in North-Europe.
In all, 1,175 items have been found in a 1,000-square-metre area, including tools mostly made of black flint, bone and horn. Black flint is not naturally found in Estonia; however, it can be found in Belarus and southern Lithuania. Therefore, scholars believe that flint was brought by the first settlers who arrived in the territory of Estonia, including the hunters and fishermen of the Stone Age Pulli settlement.

A dog tooth found at the Pulli settlement is the oldest evidence found of the presence of domesticated dogs in Estonia.
