Tool Kit

Early Neolithic, 4000–3000BC

This remarkable collection of stone and flint tools was found together inside a pot near East Knoyle in south Wiltshire. It contains objects that are typical of others found in this period, apart from the very fine flint sickle, which is good evidence for agriculture at this time.
