Neaderthal Trash

Pile of waste flakes from making stone tools at a Neanderthal site in Poland, at least 45,000 years old. More here.

Followed the link, and what stands out to a non-expert (me) about the photo of the arrow head (dart tip?) is how poor the workmanship seems to be.

On the other hand, that's perhaps the reason it was left behind in the scrap heap.

Would have been nice had the report mentioned what that part of Poland was like 45,000 years ago, the climate and terrain.
