As I have personally found each tool in my collection, I am able to offer a money back guarantee of authenticity. Pebble and cobble tools from the first humans are perhaps the most rare. Mode 1 tool technology from European sites are rare and scattered since the pebble tool technology had already been superseded by the proliferation of Acheulian bifacial handaxes roughly three quarters of a million years earlier. These two traditions were brought into Europe by Homo heidelbergensis moving north from Africa. Both traditions existed for a limited time together at the beginning of human existence in Europe. Pebble tool technology eventually gave way to more advanced traditions of core and flake tools. It is not known exactly when human groups first made their way into what is now Britain, however with recent datable finds from Pakefield and happisburgh in Norfolk, England, pushes back the previously known occupation of Britain by 200,000 years to c 800,000 - 900,000 years, this is the earliest known occupation for North Western Europe to date. Mode 1 tools are simple chopping tools and flakes; they emerge approximately 2.6 million years ago in Africa with the Homo genus and make a first appearance in Europe some time later.They are typically modified pebbles and cobbles, and appear to be manufactured by Early Homo species in direct response to immediate requirements. _gsrx_vers_779 (GS 7.0.4 (779))
