Our Price: £0.00


Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A large Neolithic  flint fabricator / hand pick 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. Fashioned from a pleasant white, grey and blue dappled flint; very nicely worked all over to form a distinctive flint hand tool with the characteristic slightly beaked functional tip. This tool whilst most likely a large fabricator for re-tooling and re-touching other flint pieces, it could well have been used as a hand pick for digging and scraping as well. A particularly large example of the type from a very famous and now, World Heritage site; intact and in very nice condition with good surface ageing, rare this large, 124mm long x 38mm deep x 28mm thick
