Early-Mid-Acheulian c.400,000-300,000 B.C. A huge, heavy and impressive Early Paleolithic pointed Stone Cobble chopper hand axe found many years back in Kimbridge Pit, near Romsey, Hampshire and from a Hampshire collection. Skilfully fashioned from a large river cobble, split diagonally and then struck to remove three large flakes effectively producing a sturdy chopping edge and point. Most likely used for crushing animal bones to extract the bone marrow, a large and imposing early stone age hand tool (weighing almost 1kg), in very nice condition with some gentle smoothing of surfaces from its time buried in the earth, 140mm long 105mm wide x 70mm deep.
