c.5000 B.C. A very large and excellent Early Neolithic "Tranchet" (Chisel tip) flint arrowhead found many years ago at Southacre, Norfolk and from an old Norfolk collection. This sizable arrowhead has been skilfully fashioned from a pleasant dark coloured flint, bi-facially worked along all edges and also across the wide transverse tip to form a sharp cutting edge. Transverse arrowheads or Chisel tipped points as they are sometimes referred to were used for hunting large prey as the wide chisel like blade edge inflicted a major wound causing rapid blood loss which brought the prey down far quicker. A much larger than normal example, intact and in lovely condition with an old collection number inked on one side, 62mm long x 36mm at widest
