c.50,000 B.C. A small but nicely worked and patinated Neanderthal (Mousterian) flint hand axe found many years ago in central France and from a Kent collection. Fashioned from a most attractive banded honey, toffee coloured flint, bi-facially worked with a thicker butt gripping section and a natural indent on one side where the thumb locates perfectly facilitating a good grip and perfect control of the tool. The opposing end of the hand axe has been expertly flaked away on either side to form a clear and functional blade, still quite sharp to the touch. A nicely patinated, well aged and appealing Neanderthal flint tool, 76mm long x 52mm wide x 30mm at thickest.
