Middle Palaeolithic Hand Axe: The flat-ended profile of this axe, found in Farnham, Surrey, is very characteristic of Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis) craftsmanship of this period of the Middle Palaeolithic (25,000-40,000 BP). At one Neanderthal site in East Anglia a similar handaxe was found lodged in a Wooly Mammoth's tusk.
