This simple knife has been made on a palm sized flint nodule. It has simple working at one end producing a sharp cutting edge. The extreme distal section has a worked nosed like area creating a backed edge for the index finger. The H. heidelbergensis group that produced such tools are thought to have originated from Asia, arriving in Britain sometime around c420,000 years ago. This particular Homo group used very simple pebble and notched flake tools. The most famous artefact from this particular group is a wooden spear that was found at Clacton-on-Sea in Essex, an area from which the Clactonian industry gets it's name. There is currently no supportive evidence to suggest that this early colonising group produced any hand axes.
