c.6000-4000 B.C. A small but rare Late Mesolithic / Early Neolithic bored Sandstone pebble Mace Head found many years back in East Lindsey, Lincolnshire and from a Norfolk collection. [PAS recorded Ref: No. NLM-17A847 - Details provided with mace head]. Nicely fashioned from a small sandstone pebble with a bi-conical hole painstakingly bored though it from either side of the pebble (probably using a wooden bow drill and coarse sand mixed with water) to allow the pebble to be fixed to a wooden handle; as this mace head is too small to have been used as a weapon it could have only been a Tribal status piece, possibly belonging to a chieftain or elder much like a staff of office is used today. Totally intact and in very good condition and a decent and affordable example of this rare and interesting Stone Age artefact, 57mm long x 46mm wide x 23mm thick.
