 The Neolithic people adopted a new method of fashioning their larger stone weapons. In the Palæolithic and Mesolithic periods, flint implements were shaped by flaking and chipping, a method which continued into the succeeding ages, but Neolithic man made the discovery that very hard stones such as granite and greenstone could be made into a required shape by grinding or rubbing with a very hard sandstone. The new method gave a very smooth and polished surface to the finished article. one time it was thought that all "​polished"​ stone implements were of Neolithic origin, but it is now known that later peoples used the same technique so that we cannot say definitely that the "​polished"​ stone axes found locally belong to the Neolithic Age. (Fig. 1 and Appendix.) \\ The Neolithic people adopted a new method of fashioning their larger stone weapons.
