2 eccentric Neanderthal scrapers. Jasper, height: both at 3". From Fontmaure, France, purchased from an older Dutch collection. The lithic on the left has what may be a chip missing at the top left in the photo. This is an old chip, well patinated. By it's form I do not think it was intentional to the piece and may be use-damage. The right side shows signs of use and was summarily knapped, hence it may have been made "in the field" for some specific function. The lithic on the right is a very slightly retouched blade on an ovoid flake, probably used more as a sharp cutting blade than a scraper of some sort. In the lower picture the point on the lower left corner served as a burin. Slight fine retouches on this directly above the burin on the left edge. They date to approximately 50,000 BCE.
