A stone axe dating back to the Neolithic age has been unearthed during an exploration by the state archaeology department near Edakkal caves in Kerala (India), throwing light into the ancient life and culture of the area. The Neolitihic artifact, found in the Ambukutty hill at Wayanad district, weighs 550 grams and measures six inches in length with the cutting edge three inches wide. Though different kinds of tools dating back to Neolithic period have been discovered by researchers in other parts of the district in the recent past, it was the first stone axe found in the area after more than a century.
