123mm x 68mm x 34mm.
By the Neolithic (New Stone Age) stone tools were not just made from flint. Many of the axes are polished rather than knapped which gives a stronger and longer lasting edge. Ideal for chopping down trees and carpentry. Some types of stone were highly prized, and traded for long distances.
