I assigned it to the Shawnee based on where it was found.
And for the Op, yet another maul/club head




Yeah, I was just tweaking you a bit but it probably predates the Shawnee. The close ups show a definite edge so more axe than maul. I think a Raoul Dodges is an expert of Shawnee artifacts (going on memory here) he would be the guy to ask

......or P. Rule or J. Evans as I believe old Dodges is in the ground so to speak....

If you take a look at this website ... Ebay: Grooved Stone Axes

You will notice that stone axes tend to have a grove in them regardless of the type of stone used ...





This one is similar, for comparison, to the one the OP's author has shown to us with pictures in the OP ...





I hope that helps you to see the obvious.

It's an archaic ground-stone axe. 9500BP-2900 BP up this way. They're a dime a dozen. Pretty cool, though!!


[stone nerd] I spit on your clueless identification and demand you accept mine as a stone maul or I shall mock you!![/stone nerd] Yeah they are all over the place, the first artifact I turned up in a test pit was a stone pick - a bit longer longer and thinner than this one.

Lets face it...it's a matter of taxonomic organisation. But common from the Middle Archaic.

Yes I remember well the endless arguments about such subjects! One of my favourite memories is of a fist fight over the classification of Cypriot pottery and which level, x or y it fit into.

Glorious

See ya

Side on at a glance it does indeed look to be only about 5cm thick at its thickest part!

Thanks to the OP's author for uploading these pictures!

I've seen (and drooled over) this size and larger ax heads. That sure is a nice one (I have a much smaller one about two feet away as I type this). There was one 25 pounder I saw last year, a beauty.

And yes, these could be used easily by someone, maybe to even break open a carcass or other rocks. Muscles aren't only developed at that modern gyms, some of these guys must have been built like Ventura.

Actually that didn't seem right to me so I measured it.
The end your pic shows is exactly 1 1/2"
It's length is 8 1/2 "

Didn't think to add that, sorry.

My reason for suggesting Nephilim, is b/c of how old it is, and how tall the person it would have to be wielding it.

The date of it, and the size of the man, (as well as what it's use was for) was NOT speculated by me, but by an archeologist. If you have letters after your name & want to argue THAT, feel free I don't feel inclined to.

The leather patina located in the wedge of the stone, as I stated before) would indicate that it was post-flood. I really can't see how a patina could survive a global flood in the first place.

I'm not arguing evolution, the bible, or whether or not this is in fact a Nephilim war axe. If you don't believe any of those, fine, but in saying that I also don't understand why we can't be polite to each other and "agree to disagree".

I don't think my theories are any more out there than some others, and considering some of the things I've read here ("Reptilians" comes immediately to mind) I think it's a far site more plausible than others.

This is my last post regarding any of these questions, if you expect me to respect your opinion, without doing the same thing in kind to mine, well than...

nvm.

As there was no global flood........ and it never locally flooded where it was found?

Um...no. This is a lovely item, but not uncommon. An archaeologist would not have invoked "Nephilim" And it's not unusual for it to display polish from the leather used in hafting it. If you like, I can post a photo of one I've cataloged. No need to get upset about it, though. Take a look on-line...maybe join the local archaeological society and pick up a trowel for yourself.

Did I say the archeologist said Nephilim? No I did not.

the archeologist claimed he could estimate the person height that used a axe by its size?

or maybe the job the axe was supposed to do more likely.

ETA. change hammer to axe

That's not very big actually. Why would someone have to be 10-12 feet tall to wield it? That looks exactly like a Native American war club...

en.wikipedia.org...

Native American's had cerimonial weapons, like shields that would never be acceptable for combat, or clubs that were so heavy they couldn't actually be wielded in close quarters. I think you are reading more into this than is there, and this object seems perfectly explainable.

I didn't take the time to weigh it, but honestly it felt like between 5-7 pounds.

I should've took side shots, it hadn't occurred to me, sorry.


Wait... The rock only weighs a few pounds, and this somehow indicates that it must have been wielded by a 12-foot super-strength giant? Is that actually what you're saying?

I was aware that the Nefelims had technology millions of light years ahead of ours,.


Light years are a measure of distance, not time.

Oh and as a comparison, when I do crossfit, I'm swinging around a 32kg (70 lb) kettlebell. And I'm no where near the stud of our gym.
So yeah, even if this thing weighed 10 lbs, it could easily be a thrown weapon, much less a simple warhammer.

Oh. Well. I didn't expect nor wish, for the thread to go all Potato.. But if it must.

I don't really know much about Nephilim and whether they are real or not. What I do know is that many years ago during a tour of the Tower of London I was amazed at many of the old armor suits. Specifically at how short the knights were back then and how broad their shoulder's were.

I don't think any warrior from 500 years ago would have much trouble swinging an ax with a head that size. If you doubt that take a look at some of the weapons they used.
