Reconstructed adze

Getting familiar and collection basic information on the use of reconstructed Linear Pottery Culture (LBK, 5600 to 5000 BC) stone blades shafted in adze handles were the main focus of the first experiment. Due to numerous tool failures, only one of three planned oaks could be felled, then split with antlers and wooden wedges and further processed with bone chisels. This experiment revealed numerous possibilities for optimization of the tools, especially with regard to the choice of shafts and bindings.
