Stone axe, Stairhaven

Stairhaven, Glenluce
This beautifully finished stone axe was found with fragments of Neolithic pottery - Peterborough Ware - in a cairn at Stairhaven.  Unfortunately nothing else is known about the discovery.   The axe is made from Cumbrian tuff and was made at one of the Neolithic axe quarries in the English Lake District.
