Wrote Alison Fisk:

Above, a stunning example of new technology in the Bronze Age.

This is a 4,500 year-old stone mold, found in Shropshire, England, which was used to cast 5 different-sized bronze axe heads at a time when the metal was replacing tools and weapons made from stone, bone, and wood.

It is currently on display at the Shrewsbury Museum "Gathering Light" exhibition, through December 12, 2021.
