51. NEOLITHIC FLINT AXE (BRITISH)

Middle Neolithic C. 3000 BC. A knapped flint axe from the UK. Bifacially worked from white/grey flint. Traces of cortex visible. Functional cutting edge. This type of axe would most probably have been hafted into a wooden or bone handle for use. The axe would have been a functional tool, perhaps used by the early farmers to make clearings in woodland. It would also have been a highly valued object, perhaps a symbol of a person's status.

Dimensions: 16cm x 5cm approx.

Provenance: Ex. private collection, UK; acquired at UK auction house.

Price: £120.00
