Site occupied and dated to 65,000 to 57,000 years ago. A huge, heavy and impressive Paleolithic (Neanderthal) flint flake hand axe 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, copiously struck and reworked around its perimeter to form various cutting and chopping blade edges. Totally intact and in excellent condition, with good surface ageing and colouration functional blade edges still sharp and well defined as is typical for finds from Lynford, a large, tactile and imposing Neanderthal hand tool, 135mm wide x 120mm high x 20mm thick
