For sale, from my personal fieldwalking collection, is this colossal early Acheulian two handed ovate LCT, Large Cutting Tool.This is tool is the largest tool from my collection, and I will be sad to see it go. This seriously heavy archaic tool has been made by hard hammer technique on a massive flint nodule weighing in at a hefty 8.2Kg/18lbs.It is partially bifaced and has around 25% of it's cortex remaining.The distal end is bifacial and rounded and likely to have made for smashing open very thick bones, probably of elephants or rhinos. The lateral edges are also very thick and sinuous, the tool can actually be balanced up right on it’s end as the proximal butt is truncated.It will need support if you intend to display it upright, otherwise it’s likely to maim someone if it fell over. This early cutting biface, belongs to a brief period of time when early hominids pushed into North West Europe and entered what is now Britain during a warm interglacial period probably around c700k - 600k years ago. For further reading, here is a link to an interesting web page relating to the subject. https://www.researchgate.net/figure/282620191_fig12_Figure-12-Large-Cutting-Tools-of-stratum-a-1-Minimally-shaped-pointed-LCT-in A very rare and early tool that superb museum grade condition with attractive working detail and patination. Found Northfleet, near Swanscombe, Kent. Early Acheulian: c 700k - 600k years BPE H.erectus/heidelbergensis Length: 30 cm / 12" Width: 19 cm / 7.5" Thickness: 14 cm / 5.5" Weight: 8,234 grams / 18.2 lbs 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. 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))
