Our Price: £0.00


Site occupied and dated to 65,000 to 57,000 years ago. A huge, heavy and impressive Paleolithic (Neanderthal) Levallois 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]. Triangular in form with a largely flat underside, with extensive working on upper surface and re-touching along the blade edges. Axe totally intact and in excellent condition, functional point and blade edges still sharp and the axe has an attractive overall whitish patination over most of its surfaces and good ageing, a large, tactile and imposing Neanderthal hand axe, 127mm long x 118mm wide x 50mm thick
