1 x RARE GORGEOUS MESOLITHIC FLAKED AXEHEAD

 

An elongate bifacially flaked pick or axe-rough but dating to a probable mesolithic period, The object is made on a broken tabular nodule of probably opaque pale grey mottled flint, there is rough and often deep flaking on both faces resulting in centre axial ridges.

 

Both faces retain traces of chalky cortex and both margins are markedly irregular and have traces of deliberate battering or dressing. One end of the object tapers to a blunt point where it has broke off, the other is blunt thick and squared-off and has a lozenge shaped cross-section, consisting largely of naturally fractured and heavily refortified nodule surface.

 

One face has a mid-gloss white to pale grey patina, the other is more uniformly pale grey low-gloss, and may be more representative of original colour. There are sporadic red-brown ferrous stains over the entire object.
