Timeless are very pleased to offer a fantastic collection of pecked & ground Stone Age Axeheads dating from the British Neolithic period, between 4000 and 6000 years ago.
This particular type of Stone Age axe differs from the typical flint or chert-type axe because the stone, whist extremely hard, does not flake when struck. In order to produce an 'axe shape', our ancestors would chip away at a piece of hardstone (a process known as 'pecking') until the desired shape was achieved. The axes would then be ground on a flat whetstone to produce a cutting edge - hence the pecked & ground axehead.
The axeheads have been mounted in a heavy textured steel frame and will make an amazing display in any room.
