Fragment of a steel mallet used to mark and cut stone

A long stone mallet, with a hole to insert a wooden handle. This metal tool had a sharp face on one side to mark and cut stone, while the other end was used to hammer and break it. This kind of tool was used to extract the large stone blocks excavated from the ditch or in the quarries located to the north and south of Puig de Sant Andreu, which were then used to build the wall.
