European "Oldowan Industry" (Abbevillian) c.700,000-500,000 B.C. A very early and typically crude stone pebble hand axe, a river find and of European origin, from an Essex collection. Fashioned from a large smooth river pebble with the often characteristic "three flakes" struck away to form a uni-facial triangulated blade and functional tip. The axe fits nicely in the hand for use and apart from some gentle surface and edge smoothing from its time in the water, the axe is totally intact and in very good overall condition, a reasonable and tactile example of this earliest form of stone age hand tools, 95mm wide x 88mm high x 37mm at thickest.
