Bone pierced pin, Whithorn

A highly polished bone needle with a rounded head.    A large needle such as this could be used for activities such as net-making. The high degree of polish is also a feature noted on weaving pins, which are used to pick threads out during patterned weaving, and for beating wefts into place.
