Crowdhill Axe

3659 Crowdhill axe with working drawing

This axe from Crowdhill near Eastleigh, Hampshire is 6000 years old (4000 BC),
a time when the Neolithic (New Stone Age) developed from the Mesolithic (Middle Stone Age).
 
It is made in a style that is more characteristic of the Mesolithic period,
so may have been one of the last of this design before the Neolithic models were fully adopted.
