Seller: muddy-feet (2.777) 100%, Location: West Malling, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 114095625747 Lower Palaeolithic, Achuelian hand axe. The axe has been created on a heavy and robust hematite nodule. It is very unusual in Britain for early hominid's to use such a mineral as a hand axe owing to the large quantity of flint that was available in the area. In addition it is also a very hard mineral to work with. It could be that the nodule was already of a partially desired shape and that a single lateral flake removal would be enough to produce the triangular shape required? Length: 12 cm Width: 8.5 cm Weight: 580 grams C 400,000 years bp From an old collection, provenance details will be supplied with the sale. Found Kent, UK. Provenance: Ownership History Available, Type: hand axe, Material: Hematite
