Fish hook, fish block, Paleolithic Age, two pointed bone implement
Object description:
Fish blocks are also called two pointed bone implements, and they were used as fishhooks.
Animal bones were ground to make a small block with two pointed heads. A groove was then made in the middle of the block, and a fine thread made of plant fibers was tied around it. The hook was then baited.
When a fish bit the bait, the block would get stuck in its mouth and prevent it from escaping.
