EUROPEAN PREHISTORIC ARTIFACTS BY PALATINA AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEED! This terrific Late Neolithic flint ( silex ) artifact is a "Large flake sickle for cutting reed". Found near Alsted in 1953! Belonging to the Late Neolithic Dagger Culture and the following Bronze Age. The last period of the Stone Age, 2400-1800 BC, known as the Dagger period, coincided with the early Bronze Age in the British Isles and Central Europe. Weapons and tools made of copper and bronze were introduced and provided a challenge for those who made flint tools. The result can be seen in the excellent examples of imitations in flint of foreign bronze daggers. At the end of the period, the production of metal implements finally gained a foothold, and there is evidence of an emerging new social stratification. This is reflected in finds from settlements with both small and much larger long houses. Burial customs varied from simple interments below ground or in passage graves, to burials in stone cists or log coffins covered with large mounds. For cutting the reeds that were used to cover the considerable expanse of the roof, flint sickles set in a wooden shaft were used. That shows the microscopic analyses of traces of use on the edges of the knives. Provenance is an old collection. More details will follow the artifact. I guarentee absolutely for the authenticity of this rare artifact from the Late Stone Age and the Early Bronze Age. Please view also my other auctions with relics from the European Prehistory.
