Hand-axe, basalt stone, c. 400,000 - 300,000 BP, were discovered at the archaeological site of Nui Do, Trieu Khanh commune, Thieu Hoa district, Thanh Hoa province in 1960.

This was one of the typical tools used while searching for food by prehistoric people in the Old Stone Age. The axe is well-proportioned, and roughly flaked and hewed on both sides. Though simply manufactured, this tool reflects a turning in the life of prehistoric inhabitants when they gradually moved from living in trees to living on the ground.
