    Today's Find. Possoble Early age stone tool.. Specific uses??

    Couldn't decide weather to post this in ' Today's finds' or here .. I was thinking, to me at least and my research it looks similar to some archulean and Oldowan early stone tools I researched on the interwebs but I also have realized pictures from a cell phone often only do little justice to significant detail, so what looks more authentic in person may appear quite dull or askew in portrait of a cheap cellphone camera, but I figured I'd give this a shot anyway. Open to hear others openions preferably from those familiar with early stone tools or different varieties of ...


    Gracias ��

    Edit ::::

    Attached I added a screen shot of some previously found Archulean stone tools for anyone unfamiliar with/ curious about early Archulean stone tools, similarity, or reference : )

    Sorry, but in my opinion, it's just a naturally formed stone.

    It looks like sandstone to me. Not tool material. A natural broken stone, IMO.

    it could be a one time use-and-toss cobble chopper....unless you found it in a creek.....just a rough and ready tool that was made even into the contact era.

    Yes definitely. Where was it found? If you found it out at olduvai gorge, then yeah Iíd check out. But if came from say, Rhode Island then itís a leverite

    Depending on the stone could be a speed tool. I've found one made out of quartz in a shell mound with just a few knocks on it, just enough to give an edge.
