This Tool Was Made By The Globular Amphora Culture Long Long Ago

Finally, after a long and thorough research, these archaeology experts have attributed the creation of this rare tool to the people of Globular Amphora Culture. Based on its precision, it was made between the years 2600 and 2400 B.C. These groups of people hail from the late Neolithic period with their historical footprints traced back to Poland and Ukraine.

Awaiting Museum’s Historical Embrace
