A large multi-tool/scraper on a flake from the Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Jasper, height 3 7/8". Excellent condition with a semi-glossy surface patina. Legal excavation find. This is a difficult lithic to classify. It may be a recycled tool as it exhibits two different techniques (hard hammer Clactonian and soft hammer retouches) which seem to be by two different hands. Excellent ergonomics and a particularly beautiful and luminous surface. Could be either Homo Erectus or Neanderthal, or possibly both if a found and recycled tool. Unsure as to dates.
