Seller: muddy-feet (2,359) 100%, Location: West Malling, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 112218402812 For sale, from my personal fieldwalking collection, is this very large, Lower Palaeolithic, Clactonian cobble chopping tool/hammer stone This early tool has been made on a heavy river worn flint cobble. It is oval with a bifacially worked distal point.The rounded proximal end has typical pitting and scarring normally found associated with hammer stones, so it probably had a dual purpose. The remainder of the chopper is cortical and rounded. It is in museum condition with detailed working and shiny patination. A superb early tool fit for any collection. Clactonian c 400,000 years BPE Length: 17 cm Width: 8.5 cm Thickness: 8.5 cm Weight: 1,448 grams Found Northfleet, near Swanscombe, Kent. 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. 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 Mode 1 tool technology from European sites are rare and scattered since the pebble tool technology had already been superseded by the proliferation of Acheulian bifacial handaxes roughly three quarters of a million years earlier.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))
