This wonderful Neolithic flint ( silex ) artifact is called "Flint Dagger Type III b ". Terrific: The marks of blow at the end of the handle showing that the handle was used as a strike-a-light - lighter. Belonging to the later part of the Dagger Culture 2400-1800 bc. This wonderful and rare dagger has a square cross section with four seams at the side edges. The flaking is wonderful and well done. Wonderful marble-like flint with fossil includings!! The last period of the Stone Age 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. Daggers replaced the battle axes from the Single Grave Culture (2800-2400 bc) as status symbol. Because of the importance the period is called after that late Neolithic artifact. The chronological sequence of the individual types can be determined by the stratification of objects found in tumili. The handle dagger is a later type. Provenance is an old collection.
