Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large and well worked Neolithic flint Combination tool consisting of a large gently curved pick and below this 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 patinated flint with pebble cortex remaining on both the top and bottom surfaces forming a good grip in the left hand when using it (left handed tools are somewhat scarcer than right handed ones as a rule); very nicely worked all over with well defined functional point and a lightly retouched wide central notch. This tool would have been used to dig and bore holes 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 overall white patination with iron oxide highlights further adding to its visual appeal, 93mm long x 50mm deep x 27mm thick
