Site occupied and dated to 65,000 to 57,000 years ago. A small but attractive Paleolithic (Neanderthal) Mousterian hand axe excavated many years back at the famous Paleolithic Neanderthal habitation site of Lyndford 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]. Roughly ovoid in shape and well worked from a most attractive black, grey and orange coloured flint, in lovely condition with good ageing and surface patination, 87mm long x 63mm wide x 30mm thick
