A fantastic ovate-shaped early Palaeolithic hand axe, dating from the Mid Acheulian and fashioned from a tan-patinated fine-grained hardstone. This enigmatic hand axe is bifacially worked and beautifully preserved, given its great age.


Knapped by the hominid species Homo erectus or Homo heidelbergensis around 500,000 years ago, it would look great in any room. Mounted on a bespoke plinth of aged oak and textured steel, measuring around 28cm tall.
