This wonderful and rare Mesolithic flint ( silex ) artifact is a "Transversal Arrow Head Stationsvej -Type", belonging to the middle of the Erteboelle - Ellerbek Culture. Transversal arrow heads are formed by dividing a blade (more rarely a flake), thus forming finely fashioned side edges which may be parallel, but mostly diverge, and two shorter, sharp, mostly parallel sides, the longer one serving as a transverse edge on the arrow. Found on two or three occasions shafted as an arrow. The Stationsvej-Type is an arrowhead with very concave sides and out-turned edge corners. Named after the settlement Stationsvej in Vedbaek, Denmark. One of the first large Nordic cultures was the Ertebolle culture (also known as Ertebølle or Ellerbek), this culture came into existence at the end of the Mesolithic period around 5400 BC and lasted to 4000 BC. The center of the Ertebolle culture is believed to have been Denmark but this people also lived in southern Scandinavia, Finland, northern Germany and Poland, and the Netherlands, which was roughly the same area as where later the Funnelbeaker people and the Germans lived. The Ertebolle people mainly lived from hunting, gathering, and fishing, they used stone tools and left large piles of shells ( kitchen middens ) at the beaches that are still there today, the shells may have been left there as offerings to a seagod though a more plausible explanation is that they simply used such places to dump their waste. The Ertebolle culture probably also believed in an afterlife because they buried their dead in cemetaries with gravegifts, in Sweden archeologists have even found dog burials like for instance the one in Skateholm, the Ertebolle people also made woodcarvings and used canoes for fishing. Provenance is an old collection. More details will follow the arrowhead. I guarantee absolutely for the authenticity of this rare Hunter Gatherer Stone Age artifact.
