Specimen: Lithic Stone Tool
Age: Neolithic
Location Found: South Coast, UK

This Stone Age Hand Axe is made from flint, making it extremely strong, and would have been essential when collecting wood, chopping meat and bone from a kill, possibly even being used to assist in the killing of the prey being hunted! The Stone Age was a broad prehistoric period during which stone was widely used to make implements with an edge, a point, or a percussion surface. The period lasted roughly 3.4 million years and ended between 8700 BCE and 2000 BCE with the advent of metalworking.

The Neolithic comprises a progression of behavioural and cultural characteristics and changes, including the use of wild and domestic crops and of domesticated cattle. The term Neolithic derives from the Greek “new”, and líthos, “stone”, literally meaning “New Stone Age”.
