Aucheulean Ancorian Stone Pick circa 100,000 BC

Here we have a very rare ancient stone tool discovered near the coast of North West Portugal. Could it be that Neanderthal man was being pushed further west by new incomers to their territory. It is a beautiful light honey coloured stone implement which the maker would have used as a pick. It fits perfectly to the hand and tapers to flat nosed point. The stone is napped fully on the left hand side and half the way down on the right hand side. Interestingly this would indicate that the maker some 100,000 years ago was right handed as clearly the tool does not fit comfortably in the left hand. The human brain is the same biologically now as it was 100,000 years ago. Fascinating.

180mm x 65mm.

S-042

Neolithic Stone Fishing Weight circa 6000 BC

Discovered in the well known Neolithic area of Seine Maritime, Normandy France, this particular fishing weight is part polished to one side, and towards the top has a hole drilled through for fixing to a line. The laborious task of drilling the hole would have been done by continually placing sand and water to the area, and boring with an antler horn piercer or a piece of wood. This would have taken a long time but was most important for Neolithic man as he could then use the weight on the river Seine to catch fish for food. An important dietary factor for the vitamin that helps develop the human brain. This fishing weight is green in colour and was discovered in Bardouville.

110mm x 80mm.

S-044

Neolithic Stone Fishing Weight circa 6000 BC

Discovered in the well known Neolithic area of Seine Maritime, Normandy France and made from light grey brown pebble stone which is polished and shows good markings of a ridge above the hole to stabilize and guide the fishing line which would have been made from a very strong vine. It can be clearly be seen at the top end of the weight where the hole has been drilled, good signs of roughing out an area to take the sand and water to allow the drilling to take place using either a deer antler boring tool or piece of wood. This would have been a laborious task and have taken a long time but was most important for Neolithic man as he could then use the weight on the river Seine to catch fish for food. An important dietary factor for the vitamin that helps develop the human brain. 100mm x 65mm.
