Warren Hill Habitation site dated to MIS 13, c.531,000 to 476,000 B.C. An early Paleolithic "Acheulian" uni-facial flint hand axe found many years ago at the famous and well documented site of Warren Hill, near Mildenhall, Suffolk; Warren Hill pre-dates the Anglian Glaciation which makes it one of the earliest known pre-historic habitation sites in the U.K. This early hand axe has been fashioned from a white, grey and yellow slightly mottled flint and has a flat underside but expertly worked on the upper side to form distinct blade edges and functional point; shaped very much in the Acheulian tradition. Totally intact and in very nice condition with good surfaces and ageing and a pleasant old surface patination, a rare and interesting example of an Early Paleolithic hand axe from a notable site, 98mm long x 78mm at widest x 38mm thickest
