Hoxnian interglacial c.424k-374k BC (MIS 11) A good Lower Paleolithic "Clactonian" Bifacially worked Flint chopper found many years back at Wheelers Lane gravel pit, Canford, Dorset and from a Hampshire Geologists collection. A heavy and chunky flint chopper fabricated from a large pebble of blue / black flint, clearly worked on either side to form a distinct functional chopping edge, pebble cortex remaining on wider grip end of tool, fine percussive scars on blade edge from repeated impact and tool most likely used for smashing open animal bones to extract the nutritious bone marrow. A tactile piece which fits in the hand nicely affording a good grip of the tool. Intact and in very good condition with good surface ageing and pleasant patination, a decent example of an early stone age chopper from a notable prehistoric site, 90mm wide x 87mm high x 62mm deep
