Neanderthal biface axe/scraper. Flint, height 2 5/8". Grand-Pressigny, France. Legal surface find. Excellent condition. Beautiful small multi-edged scraper. All edges are functional tools on this lithc, so that despite its small size it is comprised of a convex scraper, two straight scrapers, a nosed end scraper and a burin-like point. Excellent ergonomics for a small hand, suggesting that this might have been a child's tool. Dates to approximately 50,000 BCE.
