Worked Flint

WORKED FLINT

We hope these images will help you to identify a possible worked flint. The collection was loaned to us by the Wiltshire Museum who kindly allowed us to photograph it.   We can’t show you the actual flints but you can see some fine examples of flint tools, with a lucid explanation of the periods of prehistory, at the Wiltshire Museum in Long Street, Devizes.

Some dates:

  • Palaeolithic: before c. 10,000 BC
  • Mesolithic: before c. 4,000 BC
  • Neolithic: before c. 2.400 BC
