100,000-year-old hand axe found in Glourcestershire

A Stone Age hand axe has been uncovered in Gloucestershire, England.

Archaeologists uncovered the finely-worked stone tool, which may be about 100,000 years old, on a housing development in Moreton-in-Marsh.

They said they believed it may have been used by cavemen on the shores of a lake that spanned across the Midlands.

The axe is thought to have been used primarily for butchering large animals.
