Neolithic c.3000 B.C. An excellent Neolithic flint fabricator, part of a small group of lithics found on the same habitation site in Holbury, Hampshire, May 1916 and from an old collection. This tool is a super example of its type and would have been used for re-working the blade edges of other flint blade tools and arrowheads plus could also be used as a burin tool for working and engraving wooden and bone items; expertly worked from a pleasant mottled light/dark grey & cream coloured flint with a flat underside and a very prominent upper medial ridge running the length of the tool and then clearly worked either side to form a well defined "beak like" functional tip, a lovely overall shiny old collection patination with iron oxide highlights to percussion ridges adding to its appeal. Totally intact and in very nice condition, 83mm long x 17mm wide x 17mm at thickest, a very nice Neolithic tool from an old collection.
