Neanderthal Stone Tool

Neolithic Hand Axe Stone 213mm

£892.00 GBP

Neolithic hand axe measuring 213mm exhibiting the textured grip and finely honed the polished cutting edge, skill and art of the Neolithic craftsman who initially selected the stone and created the multi-purpose use tool, suitable for digging plant matter, cutting or shaping wood and even a weapon of war. Pre-history shows us, backed up by a plethora of works at excavations and research of the habitat of Neolithic man. The hand adze or once shafted adze discovered in North Africa is of a familiar and typical style, one which transcends aeons of time across several continents, out of Africa to Europe and that is today Europe and mainland Britain. The form of similar implements transported throughout the then Neolithic world.

The Saharan prehistoric discovery is connected in style and manufacture to Neolithic stone tools found in Britain, it is extremely difficult to tell one from another without location find notes. The Fossil Store discovers these ancient artefacts from North Africa and offers them for sale. Where possible we supply the location of find, country of find, region of the find. Many of these artefacts are found in open sites in the desert. Open sites describe a site found in the exposed desert regions. Often, Nomads, Berber travellers come across these open sites when traversing the desert region of North Africa, the winds uncover and equally cover these desert sites, sometimes allowing the recovering of these artefacts for a period of time.

The Neolithic Stone Age is defined as 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.
