The hammer was found in London, Texas by a couple taking a walk. Oblivious to what was inside they carried it home. It wasn’t until a decade later that their son broke the stone to discover the prehistoric artifact.
The London Hammer (also known as the "London Artifact") is a name given to a hammer made of iron and wood that was found in London, Texas in 1936. Part of the hammer is embedded in a limey rock concretion, leading to it being regarded by some as an anomalous artifact, asking how an obviously man-made tool could come to be encased in a 400 million year old rock.
Part of the hammer is embedded in a limey rock concretion, leading to it being hailed in some quarters as an anomalous artifact. metal hammerhead is approximately six inches (15.24 cm) long and has a diameter of one inch, leading some to suggest that this hammer was not used for large projects, but rather for fine work or soft metal.
The metal of the hammerhead has been confirmed to consist of 96.6% iron, 2.6% chlorine, and 0.74% sulfur. Interestingly, it’s been pointed out that the hammerhead has not rusted since its discovery in 1936.
The hammer was purportedly found by a local couple, Max Hahn and his wife, while out walking along the course of the Red Creek near the town of London. They spotted a curious piece of loose rock with a bit of wood apparently embedded in it and took it home with them. A decade later, their son Max broke open the rock to find the concealed hammer head within.
According to studies of the Metallurgical Institute of Columbia, the inside handle underwent the process of carbonization, the head of the hammer was built with an iron purity only achievable with modern-day technology. According to analysis, the head of the hammer consists of 97 pure iron, 2 percent chlorine, and 1 percent sulfur.
The Hammer began to attract wider attention after it was bought by Creationist Carl Baugh in 1983, who claimed the artifact was a "monumental 'pre-Flood' discovery." He has used it as the basis of speculation of how the atmospheric quality of a pre-flood earth could have encouraged the growth of giants. The hammer is now an exhibit in Baugh's Creation Evidence Museum, which sells replicas of it to visitors.
