Neanderthal Flint Tool

Neolithic Hand Axe Flint 104mm

£492.00 GBP

A very nice colourful hand axe measuring 104mm, 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.

In the United Kingdom, men are descended of early farmers who migrated across Europe from the Near East around 10,000 years ago. Ancient farmers left their genetic mark on modern times by breeding more successfully than indigenous hunter-gatherers as they migrated into the West. Living in the Fertile Crescent, this is the crescent-shaped geological area stretching from Egypt to the Persian Gulf, East of the Mediterranean Sea, where the land was more fertile and crops were more successfully grown.

A chunky Neolithic stone age hand adze, with excellent preservation with an attractive palette of colours. Perhaps once a prized possession to one of our ancestors, captivated by the chalcedony stone as much as we are today.
