A neolithic age fishing weight from Seine Maritime, Bardoville, Normandy, France. The stone is reasonably soft and would have been drilled by using a hard stick, sand, water and patience. Linen cords were attached using the hole and would perhaps have been used as fishing net weights. They are also thought to have been used to weigh down lines that would have cultivated shellfish, much like we do today.
