Very unusual Neanderthal tool, which slips in between several categories. It is a large, masterfully struck and fairly wafer-like flake, height 3 1/2", of chert. One face is entirely cortex (missing two small chips).

Lovely Neanderthal discoid scraper from the Vallee de la Creuse, France. Flint, excellent condition, height 2 3/8". Legal surface find. Soft ground patina.

Dates to approximately 50,000 BCE.
