This large flake tool has been created on a thick flint flake. The tool appears to have served as an end scraper. The scraper edge is slightly convex and rounded. Both lateral edges are thick and wing like for grasping. 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, it 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. Length: 130 mm Width: 110 mm Weight: 535 grams C 400,000 years bp This rare tool is in a superb collectable condition. From an old collection, Found close to "The Ebbsfleet Elephant" site Kent.
