      Nine-year-old boy finds 4000 year-old axe head in field
      BBC, 28 January 2011

      A nine-year-old Tolleshunt D'Arcy schoolboy has discovered a flint axe
      head believed to date back to 4000BC. Owen Page and his grandfather Tony
      came across the ancient stone whilst walking across fields in Little
      Totham. After showing it to Owen's cub leader, who is also an
      archaeologist, it soon became clear they had stumbled across something
      rather special. Measuring about five by three inches, it is thought it
      was first used as an axe and then as an arrowhead.
