Sited dated to MIS 9-8, c.337k-300k BP. A Lower Paleolithic unifacial pebble hand axe found many years back in Kimbridge Pit, Romney, Hampshire and from a Hampshire Geologists collection. Struck from a flint pebble of a pale honey coloured flint with much original pebble cortex remaining over most of tool affording a good grip of the tool in use and one side then has around 5 flake removals to shape and taper the axe but strangely the tip seems unworked so the axe was probably abandoned during its manufacture in favour of a better or larger pebble maybe. Some smoothing to percussion ridges otherwise and with nice ageing and a pleasant old Paleolithic colouration and patination, still a nicely worked and affordable Lower Paleolithic pebble hand tool, 90mm long x 74mm wide x 53mm deep approx.
