Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large and well worked Neolithic flint Combination tool consisting of a large knife edge, curved end scraper and a notched "spoke shave", found in the early 1970's close to Woodhenge, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, an extremely famous and important Neolithic site which together with the neighbouring Stonehenge were both designated World Heritage sites in 1986. From a Hampshire Geologists collection. Fashioned from a pleasant white, blue and grey dappled flint with pebble cortex remaining on the top surface forming a good grip in the right hand when using it as a knife; very nicely worked all over with well defined functional blade edges a lightly retouched wide central notch. This tool would have been used to cut and scrape animal hides to make clothing plus scrape bark and twigs from long straight wooden branches in order to form and shape wooden spear shafts for use in hunting. An interesting and large example of the type from a very famous and now, World Heritage site; intact and in very nice condition with good surface ageing and an attractive old patination with iron oxide highlights further adding to its visual appeal, 88mm long x 58mm deep x 19mm thick
