TUBINGEN, GERMANY - A stone phallus 28,000 years old has been discovered in a cave in Baden-Wuertemberg in southern Germany, according to archaeologists with the University of Tubingen.

In assembling 14 stone fragments found last year in the Hohle Fels cave, archaeologists rebuilt the phallus, which is 20 centimetres long and three centimetres wide.

It will be on display at the prehistoric museum in Blaubeuren.

The caves in the Blaubeuren region, which sheltered Neanderthal man, are among the most important archaeological sites in Europe.

The oldest object representing a bird, dating back 32,000 years, was discovered a few years ago in the same cave.
