Primitive Awl Paleolithic Stone Hand Tool
This tool has been classified to be from the Pleistocene, which is the earliest stone tool archaeological industry in prehistory. Stone hand tools were used during the Lower Paleolithic period, 2.6 million years ago up until 1.7 million years ago, by ancient hominids across much of Africa, South Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
This type of tool was used for stitching, scratching hard materials, making or punching holes into animals hides, and even a way to separate the hide from the animal.
Age Range: Late Oldowan to Upper Paleozoic Neanderthal and Early Homo Sapien; Origin: Orgla, Algeria
Size: 3" L X 1/2" W X 1/2" D
This fine paleolithic stone awl tool is definitely touching hands through history. Obtained in a scientific trade with a European scientific institution. One of the earliest stone tools.
