Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large and pleasant Neolithic flint scraper / spoke shave tool combo 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 on the left side and a small notched spoke shave blade fashioned on the upper right hand side with distinct media ridge along the tools length. This tool would have been used to scrape animal hides for making clothing and the notched blade for scraping the bark off and smoothing of small tree branches to make arrow shafts. 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 old patination with iron oxide highlights further adding to its visual appeal, 102mm long x 41mm wide x 21mm thick
