Two flint Neanderthal scrapers from Reculver, Kent, England. Heights 2 5/8" and 2 7/8". Both with really beautiful, glossy sea patina and in excellent (though well-tumbled!) condition. Lovely examples. The Reculver cliffs were originally an inland elevation, but over time rising sea levels have placed them on the coast where they have been eroding at an accelerated pace. The zone between the high and low tide yields many lithics with a very specific, soft to high gloss patina due to being tumbled about in the ocean. Date to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
