The use of stone axes dates back to the earliest times. Flint axes with sharpened edges would have been used for a variety of purposes including hunting and tree felling, but it is likely that special axe or war hammer weapons evolved for use in conflict. Probably some of the weapons would have been used for ceremony and highly prized and examples can be found from early periods throughout Scotland.
