Beautiful example of a mode 1 pebble chopper. Bean ore jasper, excellent condition. Height 2 1/2". Legal surface find from the region of the confluence of the Wornitz and Rhine rivers, Germany. Dark semi-glossy ground patina. Hard hammer percussion technique. This is probably by Homo Erectus. Currently there is a debate as to whether or not what we consider Homo Erectus was a single hominid species, or perhaps two (Homo Antecessor being the other). Definitely not a Neanderthal tool...

A large Mode 1, hard hammer pebble tool from Bussay, France. Flint with primarily cortex surface. Nice, thick glossy patination and mineral accumulation on the flaked areas. Three small chips missing. 6 1/8" x 3 5/8". Legal surface find. This lithic was created with two massive hard hammer percussion blows, creating a basic chopping tool with a fairly sharp edge (still!). Ergonomically very well designed using the natural shape of the pebble, but obviously for a very large hand...

Two Neanderthal burins or borers on flakes from Marbach, Germany. The larger is flint, the smaller is chert, heights 2 1/8" and 2 3/4". Both legal excavation finds in excellent condition. Both of these were struck from one end of a pebble, possibly to make a striking platform, and were then further refined into functional burins.

A Neanderthal hammer or chopper from Fontmaure, France. Jasper, height 3 1/8". Excellent condition, legal surface find. Soft, semi-glossy ground patina. This is a fairly summarily executed lithic, obviously meant for some heavy duty use. One edge leading up to the distal tip is vaguely retouched to function as a chopper or saw blade (not quite a denticulate but not smooth or refined to a scraper edge, either) and the other edge is flat, made for a hand grip...

Neanderthal burin or point from the Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Jasper, height 2 1/4". Legal excavation find in excellent condition. Soft, matte ground patina. Very well sculpted lithic.

Interesting group of four Neanderthal scrapers on flakes from Fontmaure, France. Heights between 2 3/4"and 3 1/8". All legal surface finds in excellent condition, and exceptionally glossy ground patinas. The tool on the right may be missing a chip opposite the scraper edge. It is well patinated and I can't tell if it is an early break or was intentional for ergonomic reasons. If so it is more effective when using the proximal end as a push plane...

Heavy Neanderthal straight scraper on a flake. Jasper, from Fontmaure, France. Height 3 1/4". While the larger flaking on the two faces and the more refined flaking on the scraper edge are all quite clearly defined, the tool maker left the back edge only partially worked, apparently to take advantage of the natural ergonomics of the stone, which are quite good. Ergonomics on the proximal end are also quite well conceived. Dates to 80,000-50,000 BCE.

Two Neanderthal discoid scrapers from Grand-Pressigny, France. Auction purchase, no further find information. Heights 2 5/8" and 2 3/4". Both in excellent condition on the famous caramel colored flint from Grand-Pressigny. Both of these scrapers are on levallois flakes, the larger of the two (on the right) may have been a core tablet.

Neanderthal Straight Scraper. From Fontmaure, France, jasper, height 2 1/2" at burin tip. In excellent condition, legal surface find with glossy ground patina. Interesting lithic, and I have seen this particular form of heavier flake tool a number of times from Fontmaure, with the burin tip in one corner, adjacent to the long straight scraper. In this case, the edge on the other side of the burin has been retouched about 1/3 of it's length starting at the burin, making for a short abrupt scr...

Beautiful, large Neanderthal multi-tool from Fontmaure, France. Jasper, height 3 3/4". Flawless condition, legal surface find, soft ground patina. Though a large flake tool, this particular lithic resembles in form and multiple functions a sort of modified axe. Descending from the burin tip on the distal end are two scraper edges, one a very masterfully retouched denticulate edge with a notch. This would seem, judging by the ergonomics, to have been made for a left hander. Dates to 60,000...

Interesting example of a Neanderthal axe from Fontmaure, France. This is made of sandstone, and despite the fame of the beautiful jasper tools from the region, the majority of lithics in provenance from Fontmaure are made from this color of sandstone. Height 3 5/8", legal surface find, nice glossy ground patina. The truncation on the proximal end appears to be purposeful. Despite being flat, this allows for a fantastic grip on this axe, the slight indentation on the lower right of the right-...

Solid and heavy Neanderthal cleaver or crusher. Flint, excellent condition. Height 5 3/8". Legal excavation find from Bavaria, Germany. Given the size and very direct, simple hard hammer percussion used to make this tool, I think this could be either an early Neanderthal piece, possibly one made "in the field" for a specific usage, or it might have been made by Heidelberg Man. The ergonomics, while not absolutely definitive, would suggest this was made for a very large hand. Possible dates...
