For sale, from my personal fieldwalking collection, is this large early Acheulian proto ficron hand axe. This archaic hand axe has been made on a large and heavy flint nodule.It has been unifacially worked and created by bilateral flake removals, producing an elongated distal point.The proximal end is weighted and remains cortical for grasping, it is very ergonomic in the hand.It would appear to be a forerunner of later more finely made ficrons. This axe is in superb condition with attractive working detail and patination.It is far better in the hand than the photos. Found Northfleet, near Swanscombe, Kent. Acheulian: c 600,000 years BPE H. heidelbergensis Length: 15 cm Width: 10 cm (max) Thickness: 6 cm Weight: 760 grams This tool was found in an area that has seen significant commercial, road and rail building work, it is likely that it was disturbed through construction activity. Each tool is supplied with a finds card stating the following: what it is, where it was found, by whom, date found and a rough date of it’s production.Also included is a google satellite map of the area. As I have personally found each tool in my collection, I am able to offer a money back guarantee of authenticity. The Acheulian period in Britain dates from c350,000 to c200,000 years ago, finds in Britain from this period are rare as subsequent glaciations have swept away most of the remains. There are a few important sites in Britain, one of those being Swanscombe in Kent, this tool was found around a mile from the famous Swanscombe site. _gsrx_vers_795 (GS 7.0.7 (795))
