Our Price: £0.00

SOLD

c.5,000 B.C. A large and pleasant Early Neolithic oblique Tranchet flint arrowhead found many years ago at South Acre, Norfolk and from an old Norfolk collection. This sizeable arrowhead has been skilfully fashioned from a pleasant grey flint, worked on upper surface only along the edges but the wide oblique cutting edge of the point has been carefully worked on either side to produce a sharp cutting blade. Tranchet or transverse arrowheads were used for hunting larger animals and as the wide chisel like blade inflicted a major wound, causing rapid blood loss which, brought the animal down much sooner. Intact and in lovely condition with collection number written in ink on one side, 60mm long x 28mm across blade edge.
