The Neolithic period was the period of domestication of plants and animals. Using stone axes the farmers began clearing the forests that covered England. They grew crops of wheat and barley and they raised herds of cattle, pigs, goats and sheep.
As well as farming, they also hunted animals such as deer, horse, wild boar and smaller animals such as beavers, badgers and hares.
This lead-free pewter Neolithic pendant has a bison on one side and a hunter on the other and is supplied on a waxed cord. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information on the reverse.
