c.60,000 - 40,000 B.C. A superb and well worked Neanderthal [Mousterian] small flint hand axe from Reculver, Kent. Expertly formed from a flake taken from the top of a flint cobble, cortex left on upper surface to aide grip and then carefully worked to form a good and distinct functional tip with well defined and re-touched blade edges either side . [This tool was excavated in the 1970's from an eroding cliff face at Reculver, Kent which was once the site of a lost river channel with gravel terraces on either side and inhabited from c.450,000 to 60,000 years B.C. Remains of the animals killed for food were also evident at this site and mainly consisted of Woolly Mammoth, Woolly Rhino and Aurochs]. Very nicely worked with good surface ageing, an appealing Neanderthal flint tool, 67mm long x 50mm wide x 27mm thick.
