Great collection of flint flakes / flake tools from the European Palaeolithic Magdalenian Culture, dating around 13000 bc. Late Upper Palaeolithic hunter-gatherer communities occupying much of northern and western Europe during the period 16000–10000 bc. The classic Magdalenian is concentrated in southern France and northern Spain, but it can also be recognized extending northwards into Britain and eastwards into the North European Plain in Germany, Poland, and as far as the Sudost River in Russia. The name is taken from the type-site rock-shelter of La Madeleine in the Dordogne Valley of southwest France. The Magdalenian stone industry is characterized by small geometrically shaped implements, especially triangles and semilunar blades, that were probably set into bone or antler handles for use, burins, scrapers, borers, backed bladelets, and shouldered and leaf-shaped projectile points. Bone was used extensively to make wedges, adzes, hammers, spear heads with link shafts, barbed points and harpoons, eyed needles, and jewellery. Their economy was based on reindeer hunting and fishing, and there is evidence of occupied caves as well as open sites. Some of the finest cave art in France and northern Spain can be attributed to these communities, as can a great many decorated bone pieces. The Magdalenian followed the Solutrean and Aurignacian and was succeeded by the simplified Azilian. Magdalenian culture disappeared as the cool, near-glacial climate of the late Devensian Stage warmed and the animal herds the communities depended upon became scarce. "Microliths": A term common to a number of small artefacts of flint, differing considerably in form and presumably put to many different uses. A feature common to them all is that they are made of micro-blades or, and especially in the earliest cultures, of small, narrow flakes; Next, one or more edges are shaped by blunting from one side. They are called right or left microliths, according to whether the unblunted ecge lies to the right or left when the point is forward and the specimen lies on the primary flaking scar. They have been points for arrows, barbs for spears and arrows, and perhaps as small knives. Wonderful white-blue patinated flint silex with fossil includings! Provenance is an old collection. More details will follow the artifacts. I guarantee absolutely for the authenticity of these wonderful Middle European artifacts.
