Antler pick from Grimes Graves
Antler pick, Late Neolithic (c 2400 - c 2100 BC)
This antler pick was found at Grimes Graves in Norfolk. Grimes Graves is in fact not a grave, or burial place, but a flint mine. Some of the mine shafts are 30 feet deep. Neolithic miners would use antler picks like this one to dig down to the flint deposits.
