Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A group of ten flint blades, forming part of a larger assemblage of lithic material (see other PAS records). Five of the blades are secondary (i.e. retaining some cortex), and the remaining five are tertiary (no cortex). Nos. 3, 14, 16, 22, 23 and 11 have been snapped at their distal ends. The lack of patination on the breaks of nos. 8, 16 and 11 suggests relatively recent damage, whereas that on the others is consistent with the overall patination of the blade, indicating that the damage occurred in antiquity. Most of the flakes have a light blueish recortification, retain parts of t…

Record ID: BH-268C97
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A group of four flint flakes, forming part of a larger assemblage of lithic material (see other PAS records). Given the lack of diagnostic features, the suggested date of these pieces is Mesolithic to Bronze Age. One of the flakes (no. 1) is a tertiary flake; the other three are secondary flakes. The level of recortification varies greatly, from virtually none (no. 6), to heavily recortified (no. 1). None of the flakes shows clear evidence of retouch, with the possible exception of no. 6, although the serrated edge on this piece may be the result of wear through use. All four pieces h…

Record ID: BH-256BC4
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Neolithic flaked axehead, the cutting edge of which has been lost in antiquity. The narrowest part of the axe is at the pointed butt; below this, the straight sides diverge towards the point of the break. Part of the original cortex remains, and the rest of the surfaces are heavily recortified, including the break. The flaking appears to be scaled. Length: 128.4mm; maximum width: 43.7mm; thickness: 29mm. Weight: 183.32g.

County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A possible core rejuvenation flake, probably Mesolithic or Early Neolithic in date. The subtriangular piece has a longitudinal curvature and what appear to be parts of several parallel blade removal scars on the dorsal surface, plus some of the flint's original cortex. On the ventral surface there is no trace of the bulb or ripples. The surfaces are patinated. Length: 45.9mm; width: 23.6mm; thickness: 10.8mm. Weight: 8.2g.

Record ID: BH-05A09B
Object type: BURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Mesolithic flint burin, made from a secondary flake. The piece is subcrescentic, has several ridges on its dorsal surface and diffuse rippling on the ventral. The burin's point has probably been created by blunting of the area adjacent to the bulb. In addition, there is an area of invasive retouch at the distal end. Other serrated and notched edges appear to be the result of natural damage. The flint is lightly patinated and retains a small portion of the cortex. Length: 34.6mm; width: 13.5mm; thickness: 5.3mm. Weight: 2.11g.

Record ID: BH-046506
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A flint blade of probable Mesolithic date. The blade has a longitudinal curvature, and sides that are generally straight and parallel; however, a notch has been cut at one point, which suggests that this may be an unfinished microlith. On the ventral surface, adjacent to the notch, there is an area of abrupt retouch, which cuts through the white surface patination. A central ridge creates a triangular section. There is invasive retouch to the other side. The blade has a straight, well patinated break at its distal end. Length: 26.5mm; width: 7.8mm; thickness: 2.6mm. Weight: 0.59g.

An opposed platform flint blade core, dating from the Mesolithic period. Narrow blades have been struck from either end of this subcylindrical core. One of the platforms has been truncated by damage which occurred in antiquity. The edges of both platforms display evidence of preparation. There are several hinge fractures to the perimeter of this heavily patinated piece. Length: 43.8mm; width: 26.7mm; thickness: 21mm. Weight: 27.74g.

County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A single-platform flint core, possibly dating from the Mesolithic period. The subconical core has been struck from a natural nodule and retains part of the original cortex.

A single-platform flint core, possibly dating from the Bronze Age. The roughly worked, subconical core has been struck from a natural nodule, the flat surface of which forms the platform.

Object type: ROWEL SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper-alloy spur rowel, probably dating from the post-Medieval period. The piece takes the form of a star with six equal-sized, tapering spikes radiating outwards from the centre, where there is a circular perforation. Each spike is of lozenge-shaped section and is separated from the next by a groove. Traces of gilding are visible on both surfaces of the rowel, which also has attached iron corrosion. In addition, both surfaces of each spike bear a curved or spiralled line of punched dots. The point of one of the spikes has been curved. Diameter: 41.2mm; thickness: 2.9mm. Weig…

Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Part of a copper-alloy Dolphin variant brooch, probably dating from the mid to late 1st century AD. This brooch is unusual in that it has a spring mechanism, but the form of the head has more in common with that of a hinged brooch. Only one of the subcylindrial wings survives intact, with a remnant of the second. This intact cylinder contains an iron axis bar, which is visible at the distal end and at the centre. The inner portion of this wing has been cut away to accommodate the four in situ coils of the copper-alloy spring. Above, this spring extends into part of an external chord, …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval copper-alloy hooked strap fitting. The attachment end of the fitting consists of a rectangular plate with convex upper surface and a flat underside, from which projects a pair of integrally cast, circular-sectioned rivets with flattened distal ends. A transverse ridge marks the transition between the base of the plate and the forward hook, the latter of which is of flattened-oval section, tapering towards its distal end, where there is a much wider, rectangular, flat-sectioned terminal. Traces of gilding survive on the upper surface of the heavily corroded object. Length: …
