Site occupied and dated to 65,000 to 57,000 years ago. A large and heavy Paleolithic (Neanderthal) flint flake found many years back close to the now famous Paleolithic Neanderthal habitation site of Lynford 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]. Nicely fashioned from a large, thick and heavy flake of light and dark grey coloured flint, bifacially worked to define main body and a pointed functional tip. In very nice overall condition, with good surface ageing and a pleasant old patination. A large, pleasant and scarce Neanderthal hand tool from a notable site, 120mm long x 100mm wide x 40mm thick
