A superb and intact Late Neolithic flint spearhead, dating from 2500-2100BC. The spearhead is leaf-shaped with working all over the surface of both faces. The proximal end shaped to fit into a haft and the distal end tapers to a sharp point. The tool measures 99mm in length, 39mm in width, and 8mm in thickness. Both faces have been thinned by the removal of many small, shallow, invasive pressure-flakes. The flint has patinated and is a very fine example. It was originally found in Denmark and was purchased from a private collection.
