Item:143518539697Palaeolithic flint hand axe approx 250 gms . Judging by the knapping, it was well used for quite a while, and then abandoned for thousands of years because all the wear marks have a strong patina of age on them. It was collected by a very distant relation of mine who was a known amateur archaeologist in the early 1900s. His name was De Barri Crawshay and he lived in Kent. He collected a great deal and most of it was eventually sold to the British Museum. I have some remainders! He acquired most of his material from Kent, but bought some items from Egypt and other North African sites. Judging by the colour of the basic stone used, this might have come from North Africa, but I can not guarantee it's provenance. This item is of considerable historic interest. This means that if it is sold outside the UK I will need to apply for an export licence (At no cost to the buyer) but there will be a delay of about 28 days before I can post it. If a licence is refused (which I consider very unlikely) I will of course refund all payments. To avoid unnecessary paperwork on a low cost item, all winning bids from outside the UK must be for at least £100.
