Fine grouping of 4 miniature Neanderthal points. Chert, heights between 1 3/4" and 1 7/8". Marbach, Germany. Legal site finds. All in excellent condition. Exquisitely worked, gemlike points. These would not have served, by all evidence to date, as weapons or projectile points. Rather they were likely to have been used as burins for piercing leather or scoring bones to obtain marrow. They all exhibit worked blade or scraper edges. Dating to approximately 80,000-50,000 BCE. Lovely set.
