Roughly finished hand ax from the ancient Saharan Homo erectus tribes that used to live in the time the area still had water and large game to hunt. They lived in a very different landscape as today with much more animals and competition with other tribes.
Early two-sided use type, intensively used piece, rough technique, nice pale desert patina. Perfect condition. Massive piece that would require a very very strong ancestor to be able to use this one hand tool.
Collectors item originating from a very strong and successful ancestral tribe!
Estimated 8500.000-990.000 y old.
