Full image caption

Perforated red deer antler-beam mattock. This mattock was found in 2004 on the foreshore of the Thames at Surrey. It has a chamfered (right angle) cutting edge, an oval shaft and an oval perforation which has been neatly drilled throught the beam. The short 'blade' of the mattock has been created with a single angled axe strike.
