These CAPSIAN TRADITION flake tools were found on an exposed African Neolithic site in the Sahara Desert in Northwest Africa. Each was masterfully fashioned by African Neolithic humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) between 10,000 and 4,700 years ago. These artifacts were hand-selected from thousands of incomplete and inferior stone tools of the era and region.
This set includes two UNIFACIAL BLADE KNIVES and one UNIFACIAL SIDE SCRAPER. One blade is of moderate thickness and leaf shaped while the other was made on a thick flake with steep cutting edges. The side scraper is the small of the flake tools and shows secondary flaking down one side to resharpen it, demonstrating ancient use wear. All of these flake tools are made of flint of identical color and patina and were collected from the same region site. They could have used in butchering game, leather working or even to fashion art objects out of organic substances such as bone, wood or ivory.
These tools are of the finest quality and are complete. Each stone tool exhibits the highest degree of skill in workmanship. The color and patina are especially fine, their beauty surpassing all of the commonly found tools typically found.
