Seller: renham23 (1,138) 100%, Location: Faversham, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 153181676419 Palaeolithic - Rare UK found Achueulean axe. c.350,000+BP. A superb, large and very unique acheulean axe. Probably the work of H.heidelbergensis. Produced on a cortex back elongated flake. The ventral face has a faceted surface with two main plunging, converging lateral edges. This shaping has produced a graceful waisted elongated axe. One lateral edge displays profuse, fine retouch along it entirety! r The dortsal face has some cortex at it proximal end. Of note is the natural hole that has been retained at the very centre of the tool. I find it hard to believe that this would not of been of some significance to its maker. A natural surface break is visible near the distal end on this face. Superb deep orange ancient patina. A rare and wonderful large display artifact. Size 11cm x 7.5cm From an old collection. Details and provenance supplied Always happy to combine on postage. Type: Axes
