c.5000 B.C. A large early Neolithic "Transverse (Tranchet)" chisel tip flint arrowhead found many years at Two Mile Bottom, near Thetford, Norfolk and from a Suffolk collection. A much larger than usual example, well worked from a pleasant black/grey flint with a nicely defined with the typical and slightly asymmetric wide sweeping leading blade edge. Transverse (or Tranchet) arrowheads were specifically designed for hunting larger prey and the wide blade edge was intended to inflict a large wound and maximum blood loss to bring the prey down quicker. Intact and in very nice overall condition with gentle surface ageing and a pleasant old patination, a very nice example of the type, 47mm long x 44mm wide across blade x 7mm thick
