c.5000-3000 B.C. A very nicely worked pair of Early Neolithic flint hafting picks found in Ashmore, Dorset, both copiously worked to form functional digging tools. They would most likely have been hafted into a wooden handle using sinew and natural resin for use, and would have been in much the same way as modern day pick axes. The larger example is expertly fashioned from a pleasant mottle blue. grey and white flint, the smaller example featuring an all over white patination with some iron oxide high-lights. The larger example measures 103mm long x 35mm wide x 24mm thick, the smaller example measures 71mm long x 24mm wide x 17mm thick, a great value pair of these interesting Neolithic flint tools.
