Some of the ideas discussed in this blog are published in my new book called "The Stonehenge Bluestones" -- due for publication on June 1st 2018. After that, it will be available by post and through good bookshops everywhere. Bad bookshops might not have it....

Recreating The Neolithic Toolkit

This is fun -- it's over a year old, but  some might not have seen it. ......

Very interesting.

A farmer here found a beautiful stone chisel. At least anyone with woodworking knowledge would call it a chisel, whereas the senior archaeologists call it an axe head used for chopping at tree trunks. It is very beautiful and nobody would take the risk of swinging it at a tree trunk

The new generation of young archeologists seem to be taken a new look at these type of tools and analysing the wear marks very carefully. A lot of reassessments are overdue.
