Culmore axe goes on display

The stone axe found in a garden at Culmore, near Derry in Northern Ireland, and mentioned in Archaeo News last week, has gone on display at Derry's Central Library on Foyle Street.
     The large Mesolithic mud-stone tool - believed to have been used by hunter-gatherers to fell trees - went on show in a glass case on the 4th of September, where it will remain for three days. It will then be taken to Belfast for recording by the Environment and Heritage Service, before being returned to the father and son who found it, Hugh and Frank Gillespie.
