A Palaeolithic hand axe of the Acheulian style

This Prehistoric flint hand axe is in remarkable condition for its age. One half has been knapped to form the blade, with the other being left in its natural state to serve as a grip. The axe bears variable patination throughout, as well as some colouration from mineral deposits. On one side an inscription, presumably an earlier collection reference, has been carefully painted on which reads "Tiregand W (followed by an arrow pointing upward to the right) MB 79".

The following details are reproduced from the description given by Time Vault Gallery:

"A rare French Acheulian prehistoric handaxe, fashioned by Homo erectus (H. heidelbergensis), the first humans to occupy Europe. Its prehistoric maker created an ingenious design by keeping the natural rounded cobble end for an ergonomic grip similar to an earlier Oldowan Pebble Tool technology. The later Acheulian Period is evident in the very fine and delicate secondary flaking that is seen in the superbly detailed workmanship on the distal, chopping end.

Bifacial flaking around portions of the original flint nodule are for finger rests and a refinement of the grip."
