Lower Paleolithic, probably Heidelberg Man, proto-axe on a pebble. Flint, in excellent condition, height 4 1/8". Legal find from Reculver Cliffs, Kent, UK. A very old, simple hard-hammer percussion proto-axe. The pebble itself is almost entirely intact with the removal of a few flakes to give a chopping edge. In my opinion the missing flake on the right side of the lithic (picture to the left in the image) is later damage. Otherwise intact with a sea-tossed soft patina. Dates to approximately 450,000-350,000 BCE.
