c.2500 to  2000 B.C. A good sized, excellent and very nicely worked Neolithic flint Borer / Awl tool found on Salisbury Plain in the Early 20th Century close to the famous Stonehenge Megaliths and from an old Early 20th Century West Country lithic collection. Expertly fashioned from a pleasant mottled light grey flint with the lovely white surface patination from the chalk layers so characteristic of lithics from Salisbury Plain; Uni-facial with a flat underside and with a very carefully worked and well defined Boring / Awl point, possibly used for punching holes in animal hides or boring holes or carving into smaller wooden or bone items etc. Totally intact and in excellent condition, and a scarce example from possibly one of the most notable, and now protected, Neolithic World Heritage sites, 47mm wide x 40mm deep to tip x 17mm thick
