Prehistoric, Paleolithic Flint 5 Paleolithic aterian spiers - 68 - 44 mm - (5)
Laat Paleolithisch (25.000-45.000 j.) - Morocco

These flakes from patinated silex and quartzite are very typical of the Upper Palaeolithic industry of North Africa.
They were made with the Levallois technique from a prepared core.
In Europe, there is no comparable industry during the same period.
Very characteristic is the beautifully retouched peduncle at the bottom of the tool. They could be used both as a scraper or as a point. Very few fully preserved pieces are found.

Intact, no restorations.
