Our Price: £0.00


Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A pleasant Neolithic flint flat backed 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 bluish, white and grey flint; flat back but nicely defined functional scraping / cutting edge. This tool would most likely have been used to scrape and clean animal hides prior to stitching together to make clothing with the side  blade used for cutting hide or sinew. A pleasant example of the type from a very famous and now, World Heritage site; intact and in nice condition with good surface ageing and an attractive old patination with iron oxide highlights further adding to its visual appeal, 68mm long x 18mm wide x 28mm deep
