Item:114097561712British Early Upper Palaeolithic L-R-J double burin busqué. Wonderfully made double burin created on a long thick flint blade struck from a core. It is slight twisted along it's length and has a steep triangular cross section. The blade has two well made busqué burins at opposing ends. One of the lateral edges has very fine retouches along it's length. These types of blades were made during a so-called "Transitional Period". In Britain this period is known as the L-R-J (Lincombian-Ranisian-Jerzmanowician) and is contemporary with the Châtelperronian of France and Spain. It is believed that the so-called "transitional period" was a time when both Neanderthals and Anatomical Modern Humans coexisted, a period that lasted for around 5,000 years. By around 40,000 years it is it generally accepted that Neanderthals were out competed by Modern Humans in most but not all areas of Europe, however, some did hang on a little after c40,000 years in remote places.
