Prehistoric Hafted Axe HeadYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This axe was crafted by someone living over 5000 years ago, during the Neolithic, or New Stone Age, in what is now Switzerland. Part of the antler sleeve, which was used to haft, or set, the stone axe head to the wooden handle still survives.
This axe would have taken a very long time to make, and requires different skills for the axe head and the handle. It would have been a very important and valuable tool.
