Seller: esszencia (474) 100%, Location: Kenley, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 184117509472 Swanscombe Lower Palaeolithic (pre - Neanderthal) Flake Tool with superb provenance! Approximately 400,000 years old. This scraper tool or proto- handaxe was found at the iconic Lower Palaeolithic site of Swanscombe, Kent, UK. It was purchased at auction as part of an extensive collection of hand axes and other lithics, fossils and mineral samples. Formerly in the private collection of the late Harold Spencer (1899 - 1985), Fellow of the Geological Society and recipient of the Fullerton Award. Interestingly, Spencer was a good friend of A.T.Marston - discoverer of the Swanscombe Skull ( one of only two UK palaeolithic hominid remains). It is probably through this relationship that the lithics in the collection were acquired. Will post worldwide, however cost will depend on destination -hence a £15 estimated figure is given which is subject to change. If you haveany questions or require a more accurate postage estimate for your location,please ask. Provenance: Ownership History Available, Type: Axes, Material: Stone
