GIBRALTAR, Mousterian tool
    The Neanderthal people inhabited Europe and the Middle East from the Atlantic coast to Iraq, possibly further east.  Their relics are not found in Africa.  Sea level was evidently lower then than it is today, Gibraltar was attached to Spain, but Africa was separated.  Apparently they never figured out rafts or boats.

GIBRALTAR, Mousterian, c. 80,000-40,000 BC, scraper, 78x50mm, brown stone, nicely worked backed blade, 1 tiny modern chip on edge, otherwise choice, rare location, $180.00 sold
