My fossils

Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Fossil

I found these on my place many years ago and have featured them in previous posts. On the left is a hand axe and on the right hand side, the sharpening stone and the axe showing the edge. My place was part of a walking track used by First Nations people moving across the landscape from the Clarence River towards the Mann River.

The hand axe fits so well into my hand it is amazing. The edge is quite sharp for a stone implement. I can well imagine that the person who owned these tools was very upset to find that they had been lost.

The axe is sharpened by using the other stone to chip of bits of the edge. The sharpening stone is also rounded and smooth where it fits into my hand quite easily too.

I am quite proud to be the custodian of these tools for the time being.

      1. I could but don’t really want to part with them just yet. I want ensure they go to their rightful place not in a drawer in a museum. Have some people I need to talk to when their time is right
