Neanderthal Stone Tool

Neolithic Hand Pestle Stone 247mm

£1,382.00 GBP

A sophisticated execution of craftsmanship for this Neolithic hand pestle measuring 247mm. The pestle displays an excellent patination mirroring the historical age. Historical weathering, in use and by natural exposure over the ages creating an archaic surface. A very robust and heavy pestle in excellent condition.

The stone-age artefacts are found in the northern countries of Africa, many in open sites, these open sites are area’s of scattered tools or implements lying on the surface of the desert, eroded out by the brutal Saharan winds or flash flooding, a circumstance of some decades, annual rain can fill the dry river beds for a brief few hours, the next day the ground surface as dry as ever.

Many prehistoric finds are collected one by one by the indigenous Berber travellers, herders roaming their flocks over sporadic outcrops of scrub vegetation which can quickly appear following rainfall, rainfall which can be as inconsistent as every seven years in these regions.

The Neolithic Stone Age is defined by Neanderthals introducing agriculture into a way of life, as the nomadic hunter-gatherer era declined. This occurred around 4000 BC the ideas and advancement of farming, possibly the first husbandry of livestock crossed into Europe and arrived in England.
