Site occupied and dated to 65,000 to 57,000 years ago. A huge, heavy and impressive Paleolithic (Neanderthal) flint flake end scraper / knife tool with a good quartz inclusion, excavated many years back at the famous Paleolithic Neanderthal habitation site of Lyndford Quarry, Norfolk.[This famous and well documented site sat on the edge of an ancient channel of water where Neanderthals thrived and hunted. When excavated many years back, hundreds of flint tools were unearthed alongside thousands of butchered bones and teeth of Mammoths, Woolly Rhinos and Deers. The quarry is now a nature reserve owned by English Heritage so tools can no longer be unearthed here, so this is a rare opportunity to obtain a good Neanderthal flint tool from a notable site]. Expertly fashioned from a large flake struck from the outer surface of a large flint nodule with the original cortex remaining on the upper surface, underside largely flat and smooth, end of flake expertly worked to form a slightly denticulated and still sharp scraping and cutting edge. Also has a nice quartz inclusion on the butt end of the right edge, something that must have appealed to its maker. Totally intact and in excellent condition, with nice surface ageing and colouration functional blade edge still sharp and well defined, a large, tactile and imposing Neanderthal hand tool, 113mm long x 87mm wide x 35mm thick
