This Neolithic hand axe 230mm showcases an extraordinary overall appeal, with an attractive patina, excellent preservation making this aesthetically exquisite. With a nice palate of cove browns and left open to the natural world, left to the harsh lands of the Sahara Desert, weathering creates a build up of natural patina, only adding a premium for esteemed collectors, as this shows authenticity to the artefacts age or ownership of use during the Neanderthal Age, which can be lost through dry arid sediments, as artefacts become naturally uncovered by natural weather erosion.
The Neolithic Stone Age is defined for the age where Neanderthals created and brought agriculture into our way of life, the nomadic hunter-gatherer era was no more. This occurred around 4000 BC the ideas and advancement of farming, possibly the first sightings of livestock crossed the Channel and arrived in England. The Neolithic age was the progression of behavioural and cultural characteristics, including the use of wild and domestic crops and animals.
In the United Kingdom, men are descended from the first farmers to migrate across Europe from the Near East 10,000 years ago, according to scientific research. Ancient farmers left their genetic mark on modern males by breeding more successfully than indigenous hunter-gatherers as they migrated into the West. Living in Fertile Crescent, East of the Mediterranean Sea, where the land was fertile crops were more successfully grown for traders.
