Last week’s archaeologically themed What Is It? item was an early stone hominid tool from France.
Reader Adrian Jack believes the item could be a Palaeolithic or Neolithic hand axe from 20,000BC or earlier. He said it could have been used to butcher animals, dig for plants, chop wood or to throw at prey.
Paul Archer said it probably came from the Cretaceous chalk found in the white cliffs on the French side of the English Channel.
Others with correct answers included Keith Brown, Frank Bahr, Fiona Peate, Stewart Edwards, and George Colebrook.
