Seller: palatina (5,550) 100%, Location: Heidelberg, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362318784034 Combined shipping is possible! EUROPEAN PREHISTORIC ARTIFACTS BY PALATINA AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEED! This wonderful rare Danish Neolithic flint artifact is called "Flake knife with trimmed end, side edges not blunted". Mostly fairly long. Slender specimens may sometimes be mistaken for unfinished transversal arrows. The edge is fine retouched shaping a fine point of a knife. Occurs fairly frequently in all Danish Mesolithic cultures but especially in Ertebölle Ellerbek Culture ( Kitchen Midden Culture ) 5400-4000 bc. During the Mesolithic period (c.9300-4000 BC) after the end of the ice age, hunters spread across the extensive area which connected Denmark to England during the Continental period. The forest was relatively light in the beginning with bison, wild horses, elk and aurochs. In time, the forest became more dense and red deer and roe-deer became the commonest game. Settlements were often situated near the edges of lakes which have since become bogs. In the east of Denmark, the peat in these bogs has preserved a rich variety of weapons and tools, bones from slaughtered animals and the remains of dwellings, including hut floors made of wood and bark. During the Atlantic period, 6400-4000 BC, the sea level rose so much that the northern parts of Denmark were divided into islands, and deep fiords cut into the landscape. A dense forest dominated by limetrees spread across the land. The population was found mostly near the coasts and lived on fish and shellfish, supplemented by hunting and sealing. Food scraps were piled up in kitchen middens which contained huge numbers of oyster shells. Grave finds bear witness to care and respect for the dead. Provenance is an old collection. More details will follow the artifact. I guarantee absolutely for the authenticity of this Hunter and Gatherer Stone Age blade scraper.
