c.100,000 - 60,000 B.C. A large and very attractive Neanderthal "Levallois" banded flint hand axe originally found at Northfleet, Kent. Fashioned from a highly attractive multicoloured banded flint and in the typically later Neanderthal "Levallois tradition" whereby a pre-prepared and flaked "tortoise core" is prepared from a large flint nodule and then effectively laterally thickly sliced to form these sharp angular hand axes. A most attractive piece; the highly coloured flint also probably appealed greatly to the maker of the tool. Totally intact and in lovely condition with good surface ageing and patination, a very nice example of a classic "Levallois" hand axe, 153mm long x 80mm wide x 36mm thick
