Palaeolithic Flint Axe

A stunning palaeolithic axe head found in Norfolk, UK.

 

The flint shows evidence of reworking (resharpening) and must have been a treasured object to its owner over 200,000 years ago! 

 

This beautiful axe was found in 2017 close to Swanton Novers having been rooted up by pigs. The axehead is bifacial and worked in flint with a wide, sharp cutting edge and a blunt 'hammer' at the butt end.
