Neolithic Hand Axe Flint 122mm

£1,092.00 GBP

A unique Neolithic hand axe measuring 122mm of intriguing craftmanship by an ancient hand, the chert is very and most unusually coloured with pale cream overlaid to one side with a striking bright pink demi lune banding marking around a central lighter agatised inclusion. Opposing these inflexions is a niche, a concave hollow which fits perfectly one digit. View our illustrations to view the beauty of this exceptionally well-marked weapon or and stone age tool. The stone having been flaked to form comfortably in the hand and finally polished. The hand axe is in an excellent state of preservation, complete, unbroken, with a particularly good and keenly polished terminal cutting edge. A very beautiful stone age artefact.

Some tools were used in the hand and some were set into wooden shafts and it is thought for use in feuds or skirmishes as a weapon. These adze or axes probably were a multi-purpose tool. Used to dig up plant tuba roots, be hand-drawn or shafted, the first multi-too. A typical African Neolithic stone age work from the region of the ténéré (Southern Sahara) desert, this hand axe was collected along the Touareg Mali and Niger ténéré old routes and encampments.

The Neolithic New Stone Age is defined by Neanderthals developing agriculture into their way of life, the lifestyle of the nomadic hunter-gatherer era was coming to an end. This occurred before 40,000 BCE which approximately marks the extinction of Neanderthals, the progressive advancements in farming, possibly in Britain was the first time livestock crossed the dry land-lock, which today is the Channel and on arriving in England influenced a more domestic lifestyle. The Neolithic age was the progression of behavioural and cultural characteristics, including the use of wild and domestic crops and animals, in this process, the technical skills of stone tools leapt forward.
