But even if you hafted a wood handle onto that hand axe, you would still end up with a mode 3 dimwit tool.

[humanorigins.si.edu]
There were also stone tools found with the spears (if that's what they were), so if the wood spears were preserved at that site, tool handles would have been preserved there also.
