Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large Neolithic flint "spokeshave" tool 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 and grey banded flint with some pebble cortex remaining on one side forming a thumb grip in the right hand; very nicely worked all over to form a distinctive wedge shaped flint tool with a finely worked and deliberately formed and retouched wide central notch. This tool would have been used to 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 whitish patination with iron oxide highlights further adding to its visual appeal, rare this large, 97mm long x 50mm deep x 38mm thick
