c.120,000 - 60,000 B.C. An excellent and very attractive Paleolithic Neanderthal (Mousterian) "Levallois" flint flake hand axe from Reculver, Kent. A large and well defined flint flake tool 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 fits very confortably in a right hand grip for use. Fashioned from an attractive deep chocolate brown flint it has excellent surfaces, nice surface ageing with a lovely shiny 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 73mm wide x 30mm deep.
