Combined shipping is possible! EUROPEAN PREHISTORIC ARTIFACTS BY PALATINA AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEED! This wonderful and extremely rare Danish Neolithic flint ( silex ) artifact is a thick butted B-type ax ( axe ) with V-formed longitudinal section, partly shafting gloss at the small sides, belonging to the later part of the Single Grave Culture, 2800-2400 bc and the earliest part of the Dagger Culture 2400-1800 bc. A picture of a changing lifestyle emerges with the finds from the Single Grave Culture. The ritualistic existence of earlier communities seems to have disappeared. Our knowledge of this period is almost exclusively based on discoveries from grave mounds, where single graves indicate equal respect for both men and women. From this time onwards, carts were used for transport and large areas were cultivated. Settlements were also found near the coasts where people lived mainly by fishing, hunting and sealing. Thick-butted flint axes with a rectangular ross-section and a narrow, sometimes square butt-end. The sides are usually very carefully polished, whereas the edges and butt-end are often finely flat-flaked but unpolished. These axes are, on the whole, considerably smaller than the earlier thick-butted axes, sometimes being very small indeed. Provenance is an old collection. More details will follow the ax. I guarantee absolutely for the authenticity of this artifact from the Younger Stone Age. Please view also my other auctions with relics from the European Prehistory. etope-lister
