Nine-year-old find 6,000-year-old axe head

A nine-year-old in Essex has saved a precious 6,000-year-old axe head from being thrown away.

An alert nine-year-old stopped his granddad throwing away a 6,000-year-old flint axe head which he had mistaken for a regular stone.

Tony Page didn’t realise the significance of the find as he walked with grandson and Cub Scout Owen on a footpath in Little Totham.

“I was picking up stones and just throwing them for the dog,” said Mr Page. “When I picked this up my grandson said it was something special. It was a like an extra large arrowhead.

“He is only nine but he is very much into fossils.”
