Neolithic c.3000 B.C. A pleasant Neolithic small spear point 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 flake of pleasant white and grey flint; flattish on both upper and lower surfaces but very nicely worked on either edge to form a distinct projectile point with a well defined functional point. Small area of natural cortex on butt end of point. Being too small in both size and weight for a throwing spear and too chunky for an arrow point, it was most likely hafted into a short wooden shaft and used as a small thrusting spear for killing smaller prey. An interesting and 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, 56mm long x 43mm wide x 10mm thick
