Another good source on this issue might be: Chimpanzee Material Culture:
Implications for Human Evolution by W.C. McGrew. I took an upper-division
physical anthropology class taught by him a few years ago on primate
social behavior. He made the tentative argument, based on his research on
chimpanzee toolmaking, that chimpanzees may have the very rudimentary
elements of culture, depending on how you define it. Perhaps, when you
have the time or inclination, you might look through it and make up your
own mind on the matter.
