Prehistoric axe head unearthed in India

A stone axe head dating back to the Neolithic age has been unearthed from Mampallikunnam, near Chathannur, in Kollam district (India). The axe was discovered by local people in a paddy field at the foot of a laterite hillock.
Studies conducted by P. Rajendran, an archaeologist and researcher at the Department of History under the University of Kerala, revealed that it is a well-finished stone axe head dating back to the Neolithic. The axe head, measuring six inches in length and three inches in breadth, has an oval cross-section and was made by flaking, pecking and grinding.
