The Tardenoisian (or Beuronian) is an archaeological culture of the Mesolithic period from northern France and Belgium. Similar cultures are known further east in central Europe, parts of Britain.[1] and west across Spain. It is named after the Tardenois region in France, where E. Taté first discovered its characteristic artifacts in 1885.

Characteristic artifacts include trapezoid, chisel-ended arrowheads and small flint blades made by the pressure-technique.

The Tardenoisian followed the Ahrensburgian, with which it was paralleled, and lasted from about 8000 BC until the Neolithic.
