One of the most intriguing flints in Tom Walls collection is a remarkably large example from Marshall’s Pit in Harewood Forest, to the east of Andover. It measures 785 mm in length but is comparatively slender, and weighs kg. A handaxe from Furze Platt, Maidenhead, measuring 856 mm, but weighing kg, is generally considered to be ‘too large for practical purposes…perhaps (having) a symbolic meaning.’ The Marshall’s Pit tool might just have made an effective (two-handed) cleaver!
One of the objects removed from the archaeology 8766 time line 8767 display was this ovate handaxe from the Old Stone Age (Palaeolithic). Its Hampshire Cultural Trust number is /8 and it belongs with another two axes, a cleaver and a knife, all made of flint. There are no real details of where they were found, but they are from the Fareham area. In this the axe is in good company, as many of these distinctive tools, dating from anything up to 555,555 years ago, have come from Hampshire 8767 s coastal fringe.
Access: You need to go into the Sedona Cultural Park Information Center to make reservations. They are free but you must purchase a Red Rock Pass $ for the day. I believe the limit was 77 cars. Site interpreters at the ruin and the rock art keep track with radios of people at each site along with the person at the house.
