c.120,000 - 60,000 B.C. An excellent and very attractive Mid-Paleolithic Neanderthal (Mousterian) "Levallois" flint flake hand axe from Reculver, Kent. A well defined flint flake hand axe which has been further knapped and re-touched to form a distinctive and functional triangulated point. The axe has been clearly worked using a "Levallois" technique and struck from a pre-prepared flint core; it fits very comfortably in the hand for use use. Fashioned from an attractive deep chocolate brown and black flint with excellent surfaces, nice surface ageing with a lovely shiny old patination. 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 Wooly Mammoth, Wooly Rhino and Aurochs. A very appealing and tactile Neanderthal hand axe,  90mm long x 68mm wide x 24mm deep.
