Foxhall Road Habitation site dated to c.400,000 to 300,000 B.C. A large and rare Paleolithic Trapezoid flint spear point found in the early 20th Century at the famous and well documented site of the Foxhall Road Gravel pit in Ipswich, Suffolk which demonstrates a very early form of "Levallois" Industry type of manufacture (flake struck from the top of a prepared flint core). Well defined and worked from a most attractive "Toad Belly" dappled brownish / olive green flint, synonymous with a few other notable East Anglia Paleolithic sites. The main point slightly asymmetric in form with a large blade edge to the right and smaller to the left, clear retouches along both blade edges to sharpen, a large bulb of percussion at rear of point in order to thin the point out to for hafting into the end of a split wooden shaft with tree resin and sinew. Totally intact and in lovely condition with good surfaces and ageing and a nice overall old surface patination, a rare and interesting example of a Palolithic spear point from a notable Paleolithic site, 96mm long x 62mm at widest x 19mm thick
