This neanderthal crafted tool has been made on a unifacial flint flake. It is roughly of an ovate in plan with a distal and side scraping edge.The lateral scraping edges have fine ventral retouches. A fantastic tool that is in very good condition, far better in the hand than the photos.

As I have personally found each tool in my collection, I am able to offer a money back guarantee of authenticity. The Mousterian period in Europe dated to around 200,000 - 100,000 years ago, it was not until around 100,000 years ago that it made it's appearance in Britain, this was probably due to the harsh climate at that time. The Mousterian period in Britain ended circa 40K-35 years ago shortly after the arrival of anatomically modern man, it is thought that there was a period of c 5,000 years where both species lived at the same time and shared ideas. The Mousterian stone tool industry was based on the production of flakes that were used either as sharp points, side scrapers, notches, denticulated and the thin flat based hand axes. The levallois technique and handaxes continued during the middle Palaeolithic as did the production of various scrapers and bifaces similar to those of the Acheulian tradition. _gsrx_vers_779 (GS 7.0.4 (779))
