Early-Mid-Acheulian c.400,000-300,000 B.C. An excellent Early Paleolithic Stone Cobble chopper / hand axe found many years back in Kimbridge Pit, near Romsey, Hampshire and from a Hampshire collection. Skilfully fashioned from a large river cobble, uni-facially worked and struck to remove two large flakes effectively producing a sturdy chopping edge and point. The remainder of the hand axe / chopper still has the original pebble cortex in-situ which acts as an effective hand grip. This substantial hand tool was most likely used for crushing animal bones to extract the bone marrow, a large and interesting early stone age hand tool in very nice condition with some gentle smoothing of surfaces from its time buried in the earth, 80mm wide, 102mm high x 58mm deep.
