Large Mesolithic flint Hand Axe / Cleaver from Suffolk. SOLD
Our Price: £0.00


c.10000 - 5000 B.C. A large and impressive Mesolithic flint hand axe or cleaver originally found near Beccles, Suffolk at a known Mesolithic habitation site and from a Suffolk collection. Well defined for a Mesolithic tool with flat underside, upper surface largely still with original pebble cortex in situ but this has been skillfully knapped away at the base to form a wide functional blade edge. The axe fits the hand nicely and would have made a good chopping implement. Nicely aged with good patination of exposed surfaces, a very good example of the type, 135mm long x 77mm wide x 26mm thick
