Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large and pleasant Neolithic tanged and denticulated 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 blueish white and grey flint; flattish underside but very nicely worked all over the top surface with a well defined and denticulated functional scraping edge and a robust elongate tang at the rear suggesting that this tool may possibly have once been hafted into a wooden or bone handle for use. This tool would have been used to scrape animal hides for making clothing and also possibly for shaving and shaping of wooden items due to its particularly robust nature. 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, 78mm long x 54mm wide x 20mm thick
