Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age c.2200 - 1800 B.C. A nice perforated stone axe hammer found in the early-mid 20th Century on Luneburg Heath, Northern Germany, a location known and well documented for its barrow burials and other megalithic sites. From a Canadian collection amassed in the 1960's/70's. A pleasant axe hammer fashioned from a coarse grey (igneous?) stone, well defined blade edge and a large central hole (painstakingly hand bored using bow drills, coarse sand and water) for fixing the axe hammer to a wooden shaft. Old inked inscription on one side in German "Bei Luneburg". A few minor old peripheral knocks from its time buried in the earth otherwise intact and in good overall condition, a pleasant and affordable example of the type, 92mm long x 35mm wide x 37mm deep.
