Our Price: £23.00

Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large and pleasant Neolithic flint Graver 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 flint; flattish underside with original pebble cortex on upper surface but very nicely worked to form a well defined functional engraving tip. This tool would most likely have been used to engrave and finely work other wooden or bone items. 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, 70mm long x 48mm wide x 12mm thick
