Stone Age ax found in Switzerland

During underwater digging at a late Stone Age village in the site in Cham-Eslen, 15 miles south of Zurich (Switzerland), archaeologists have found a stone ax more than 6,000 years old. The double-headed stone ax, with a well-preserved wooden handle about 1,2 meter (4 feet) long and a finely made blade, is unique in Europe, the archaeologists said.
     Work at the site is concentrating on the parts of the Stone Age settlement under greatest danger from erosion. A team of divers has been working under the surface of Lake Zug since October 1998.
