A lovely Neanderthal scraper on a flake. Flint, height 3 1/8". Excellent condition with a beautiful, well worn sea patina. This was an auction purchase, with no collection history. Given the color of the flint, the typology and the specific type of patination I believe this lithic is from Reculver Cliffs area, Kent, England. Boldly and simply executed with a few master retouches, the scraper also exhibits excellent ergonomics. Dates to approximately 120,000-60,000 BCE.
