Ancient stone age axe discovered on Clacton beach



A STONE AGE axe head that could date back more than 200,000 years has been discovered on a beach near Clacton.
Neighbours Mary Gilbert and Rodney Lee found the hand-sized tool in shingle near the low tide mark at Holland Haven.
Amateur archaeologist Rodney, 82, described it as the “discovery of a lifetime”.
He said: “It is a beautiful Stone Age axe head in pristine condition.
“We were just looking along the shore because I was curious to see what was there and Mary said ‘Look, there’s something’.
“It was the find of a lifetime.” [...] clactonandfrintongazette.co.uk
