Item:152301637498Palaeolithic - Neanderthal. Rare UK scraper. c.60,000 BP. A very fine atypical mousterian point. This tool displays great skill and expertise in its manner of production. The removal from the original core was purposefully planned as to leave a single arete ridge down the dorsal face, with two sharp plunging edges and a perfect distal point!. The ventral face has strong percussive ripples, showing that the striiking platform was midway along one lateral edge. The differing patina of dorsal and ventral faces show this tool was produced frm an older core. A superb mousterian piece. Size 7.5cm x 3.5cm From an old collection. Details and provenance supplied Always happy to combine on postage.
