Lower paleolithic proto-axe from Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Probably Homo Erectus (Antecessor). Bean ore jasper, height 2 3/4". Minor chips, otherwise excellent condition. Legal excavation find. Remarkably conceived in terms of ergonomic design. The thumb channel on the ventral side of the axe allows for a substantially stronger grip on the axe, greatly increasing its efficacity. Dates to 300,000-200,000 BCE.
