A collection of modern recreations of Stone Age tools. The picture above shows (from top right to bottom left):

  • A hatchet with a wing spar, used for felling trees
  • A straight hatchet for shortening smaller pieces of wood (with a piece of deer antler above it to illustrate what is used for the "blade")
  • A short axe with transverse stone blade, used for working wooden boards (with a piece of deer antler above it to illustrate what is used to hold the stone blade)
  • Two wooden wedges to split wood, also used to make wooden boards

Photographed at the Pile-Dwelling museum in Unteruhldingen on Lake Constance, Germany.
