Record ID: BH-DCD6D6
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Retouched flint flake of early Neolithic date. Measures 49mm long by up to 19.4mm wide and 6.3mm thick. The worked surface has been formed by the removal of four longitdinal flakes. There is retouching to the left hand side (as you look at it), which has created a serrated blade, whilst a further thin longitudinal flake has been removed from the right hand side to form a blunt scraping surface. There is an area of unworked weathered flint surface at the bottom of the flake. The reverse is plain apart from a small bulb of percussion at the top and shallow rippling across the surface. We…

A good example of a late Neolithic to early Bronze Age 'horseshoe' type flint scraper. From the flat platform area at the top, the sides angle downwards, creating a roughly trapezoidal top section; the lower two thirds of the implement have rounded edges. The surface of the tool is convex and has been extensively worked. Several vertical and angled flake removal scars mark a central ridge from which radiate downwards several other scars. The majority of narrow scars are concentrated around the bottom end of the tool, although there is evidence of finer retouch and grinding around al…

A good example of a flint 'thumbnail' type scraper of late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. At the top, the implement retains a portion of the flat core platform. From here the sides angle downwards and outwards, extending into a rounded bottom edge. The upper surface of the tool is convex, having been formed by the removal of a radiating pattern of narrow flakes. The majority of retouch is to the distal and right hand (as you look at it) edges. The reverse is flat and the bulb-of-percussion has been removed. The flint is light to mid grey in colour and has little surface patinat…

County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Neolithic date. This implement is very simple in form, having been made from a large flake. The flake is sub-circular in plan, has a convex upper surface and a flat underside. The upper surface retains much of the original cortex, the only exception being where the limited re-touching has occurred at one end, where the removal of six or seven narrow flakes has created a crude scraping edge. Interestingly, the level of patination on the underside of the tool suggests that this flake was of considerable antiquity when it was selected for use as a tool; in f…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint microlith of Mesolithic date. The piece is incomplete, the angled bottom edge broken to reveal an unpatinated, and therefore relatively modern, break. The top point has also been lost relatively recently. The remaining tool has sides which converge towards the top and has a central arrise, creating a triangular section. Both vertical sides have been re-touched to create saw-like edges. The flint surface is a heavily patinated blueish-white colour. The tool measures 19.7mm long, 8.7mm wide and 2.5mm thick. The weight is 0.42g.

County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint scraper. The tool has been made from a broad sub-oval flake which retains nearly all of its original cortex on the dorsal surface. Invasive re-touch has flattened the distal side and finer re-touch has been used along the edge. This re-touch extends to almost halfway down the vertical sides. On the convex ventral surface is a clear bulb-of-percussion and rippling. The flint is unpatinated and dark brownish-grey in colour. The tool measures 34.1mm long, 40.1mm wide and 12.1mm thick. The weight is 22.47g.

A Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint scraper. The tool has been made from a broad flake which has been worked to create a semi-oval form. The dorsal surface retains half of the original cortex, the other half having been removed and the curved edge serrated. Unusually, most of the working is confined to the flat distal end, where invasive re-touch has created an almost vertical face. At the centre of this edge is a notch. Fine re-touch is also visible on the other curved long side. On the reverse are two adjacent bulbs-of-percussion and emanating ripples. The flint is a lightly pat…

A late Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint scraper. The tool is sub-oval in plan and abruptly re-touched. A transverse flake has been removed from the dorsal surface in order to create a platform for the thumb. Other than this, much of the original cortex remains. Re-touch is limited to the convex proximal end, although close inspection of the ventral surface shows a narrow flake removal scar extending from the distal end and there is some associated re-touch at this point. At the opposing, proximal, end is a bulb-of-percussion. The flint is heavily patinated on the dorsal surface b…

A flint scraper of probable late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The scraper is horseshoe-shaped, the rounded sides converging towards a horizontal proximal end (a fragment of the core platform). The dorsal surface has a wide, flat area which would have acted as a thumb rest. The tool has been re-touched on both the end and sides. This re-touch takes the form of broad, parallel scars with finer chipping at the bottom. On the ventral surface is a clar bulb scar, and rippling can be seen on both surfaces. The flint is a translucent greyish-brown colour. The artefact measures 33…

A probable flint scraper of early Neolithic date. Although no exact parallel could be found for this piece, the form bears some resemblance to early Neolithic arrowheads, hence the suggested date range. The artefact is leaf-shaped, with a convex proximal end and tapering sides. Close to the top is a projection of narrower width than the main body of the scraper. The top edge has been deliberately flattened through invasive re-touching. The convex upper surface of the piece has been extensively re-worked, with numerous long, slender pressure flake scars radiating outwards from the ce…
