Rare Cambodian Neolithic Stone Axe.
Length 4 1/4 ins. (10.9 cms) This stone implement is similar to many shouldered axe heads excavated at the early Cambodian archaeological site of Samrong Sen (see Wikipedia for details).
Dating of Neolithic artefacts is a very inexact science. Radio carbon dating has placed occupancy of the Samrong Sen site back to 3400 BC. The condition is very good with the expected ancient chipping of the cutting edge. There is one small modern chip to the cutting edge. There is a ferrous looking “growth” on the piece which is probably iron pyrites but our knowledge of mineralogy is very limited.
