The hand axe is bifacially worked with well defined functional point. Intact and in very good overall condition with good ageing and imbued with an appealing old collection patination, an imposing and tactile piece and a scarce and good example of the type from this famous early prehistoric site, 145mm long x 80mm wide x 54mm thick
