A group of three Neanderthal Multi-tools. The lithic in the center is from Upper Normandy in France, near Beauzeville (along the Seine) and is a legal surface find. The other two are from Marbach, Germany, also legal surface finds. All three are in excellent condition, the French lithic is flint, the German lithics are chert. Heights are all 3". Variegated to glossy ground patinas. All three of these tools exhibit a fine technical realization of complex multi-tool functionality. The French lithic, for example, has a nosed end scraper at the distal end, turning into a longer straight scraper on one side, with a shallow notch near the proximal end on the other side. the proximal end has been retouched to form a slightly concave push plane. The German lithic to the right has a multi-purpose blade edge, with two different size and depth notches and a continuous retouched edge to form a long, semi-straight scraper. The distal end has a small, abrupt scraper, and on the other side there is a short denticulate passage with more vigorous retouches. All date to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
