Seller: muddy-feet (2,292) 100%, Location: Kent, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 112218410771 Above: The dorsal side has a cordiform aspect with a wide cortical handle like grasping area behind. Above: Ventral face, distal point and wide proximal cleaver. Above: Wide and slightly rounded unifacial proximal cleaver Above: Left lateral edge Above: Right lateral cortical wedged shaped edge Above: Un-retouched cortical cleaver edge Above: Cordiform aspect distal end For sale, from my personal fieldwalking collection, is this outstanding Acheulian biface/cleaver . This wonderfully made biface has been created on a heavy flint flake struck from nodule. It is wedged shaped in section with a cordiform biface located at the distal end and a unifacial proximal cleaver.The cleaver is fantastic, it is unifacial and very slightly curved with fine ventral retouches. The cortical edge remains un-retouched.Both lateral edges are thick and wedged shaped with large cortical areas remaining for grasping. It is very heavy and weighs in at a whopping 1,889 Kg/4.1lbs, realistically it could have only be used as a two handed tool and likely to have only been used for smashing open large bones to extract the marrow. This biface is in museum grade condition with attractive working detail and patination.It is far better in the hand than the photos. Found Northfleet, near Swanscombe, Kent. Acheulian: c 350,0000 - 200,000 years BPE H. heidelbergensis Length: 21 cm Width: 13 cm (max) Thickness: 7 cm Weight: 1.898Kg/4.1 lbs This tool was found in an area that has seen significant commercial, road and rail building work, it is likely that it was disturbed through construction activity. Each tool is supplied with a finds card stating the following: what it is, where it was found, by whom, date found and a rough date of it’s production.Also included is a google satellite map of the area. As I have personally found each tool in my collection, I am able to offer a money back guarantee of authenticity. The Acheulian period in Britain dates from c350,000 to c200,000 years ago, finds in Britain from this period are rare as subsequent glaciations have swept away most of the remains. There are a few important sites in Britain, one of those being Swanscombe in Kent, this tool was found around a mile from the famous Swanscombe site. _gsrx_vers_779 (GS 7.0.4 (779))
