Our Price: £23.00

Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large and pleasant Neolithic flint end scraper 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 bluish, white and grey flint; flattish underside but very nicely worked all over the top surface with a well defined functional scraping edge. This tool would most likely have been used to scrape and clean animal hides prior to stitching together to make clothing. An interesting and much larger than normal 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, 65mm long x 32mm wide x 10mm thick
