Prehistoric stone axe

Prehistoric stone axe.

Prehistoric stone axe.

This prehistoric stone axe is triangular in shape and has convex sides and edges. The axe’s stone surface has been worked over with a chisel or pick or some such implement, to leave it pocked with tiny indentations. This tool was attached to a wooden shaft and was used to fell trees and cut them up for firewood and other uses.
