Neolithic flint axehead – fully polished

£250.00

SKU: PT0025. Category: . Tags: , .

Product Description

This type of flint axe head appears to have been the odd one out, in terms of functionality. The sheer amount of labour involved in making these suggests that they were something really special. Perhaps Neolithic status items rivalling the Ferrari of today? These flint axe heads are frequently found complete and undamaged, suggesting they were not for agricultural use, but impressive items to be displayed. A joy to behold!

You can order this axehead set in a wooden handle, please add “Wooden axe/adze handle” to your order.
