c.3000-2500 B.C. A compact, finely worked and excellent Neolithic flint spear head unearthed many years back in the Yorkshire Wolds and from a Newcastle collection. This spear head would have once been hafted into the end of a wooden shaft using natural resin and sinew and judging by its size may have been from a smaller thrusting spear rather than from a larger and heavier throwing spear; it is expertly fashioned from an attractive semi-translucent dark flint, finely worked and pressure flaked over the majority of the spear head. Of thin section with still sharp edges. Intact and in excellent condition with good surface ageing and some very gentle smoothing to the tops of the percussion ridges from its millennia buried in the earth. It possesses a lovely old collection shiny patina throughout and is a fine example of its type, 60mm long x 33mm wide x 8mm thick
