Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of flint flakes probably dating from the late Neolithic to middle Bronze Age. The assemblage consists of thirty four waste flakes and was collected through fieldwalking. They vary in size, from bewtween 15.2mm wide and 16.1mm high, to 42.8mm wide by 62.4mm high. They are generally broad, with a single bulb of percussion and rippling. The flint varies from a dark grey to a highly patinated white. The total weight of the assemblage is 296.5g.

A flint core of probable mid to late Neolithic date. The object has a roughly semi-circular striking platform and broad flake removal scars around its perimeter. These are generally vertically aligned, although there are a few diagonal ones also. A small portion of the cortex remains and has a pinkish hue, possibly indicative of having been burnt. The flint surface is a heavily patinated creamy white colour. It measures 35.3mm wide by 26.4mm thick and 28.8mm high. It weighs 27.73g.

A flint end scraper of probable early Neolithic date. The tool is roughly oval in shape and has been made from a flake struck from a core. A portion of the core's striking platform remains at the bottom. The upper surface of the object is convex and has several vertical arrises. The upper edge (opposite the striking platform remnant) has been retouched to form the scraping edge. There is no evidence of working along the two long sides. The reverse is plain apart from a bulb of percussion which emanates from the striking platform. The surface of the flint is a heavily patinated white. I…

A pointed flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic (c. 500,000 - 300,000 BC) date. The tool has been made from a large flint nodule. At the butt end there remains a portion of the original cortex. The tool tapers upwards from the rounded butt, decreasing gradually in width and thickness towards the rounded point. There are several broad flake removal scars, which radiate downwards and outwards from the butt end, whilst the edges have received much finer retouching. The reverse has less evidence of working, but there are several broad flake removal scars near the butt. The flint is a pati…

A flint End scraper of early Neolithic date. The implement has been made from a large, thick, broad flake of roughly rectangular form. At one of the two narrow ends the tool retains a portion of the flat core platform. The convex upper surface of the tool has been formed by the removal of six long flakes, scars for which remain. Most of the retouch is to the angled and rounded end, where there are much smaller flake removal scars and fine retouch along the edge. The lower halves of the two long sides have also been subject to the removal of fine chippings, which has created serrated…

A triangular flint scraper of probable late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. No exact parallel could be found for this piece and, although its form can be compared with that of some arrowheads of the period, it would appear to be too large to have performed this function. The tool has been made from a broad flake. The convex upper surface has been formed by the removal of both broad and narrower flakes, which are aligned in several different directions, but mostly radiate outwards from the centre, angling downwards to the edges. All three sides show signs of having been finely re…

A re-touched flint flake tool of probable late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. The tool, which has been made from a broad flake, is sub-triangular in form. The upper surface has two broad flake removal scars, whilst the underside shows rippling from the initial strike. Re-touching has occurred around two of the three edges, with the removal of a single row of mostly very small chippings; the remaining side retains its original cortex. The flint is a lightly patinated mottled greyish brown. The implement measures 29.6mm long, 28.9mm wide and 5.5mm thick. The weight is 4.91g.

A small worked flint flake of prehistoric date. This piece either represents a notched flint microlith (see PAS record nos. BH-7F3678, 7F3CD0 and 7F3E38 for similar examples) or may be the tang and one barb from a late Neolithic to early Bronze Age arrowhead. The object is sub-triangular, having been broken off along the straight upper edge. A small notch has been deliberately created at the centre of the right hand angled edge. The reverse is plain, apart from some rippling. The flint is dark greyish-brown in colour and has little patination. The implement measures 12.8mm wide, …

Flint tool, long and pointed at both ends, with a small bulb on the ventral surface, and four flake scars on the dorsal surface. The is an area of short retouch extending a short way along the left dorsal side from the distal end. There may also be some retouch on the right side (including notches?) although this may be damage. Fine light brown flint, no cortex, no patination. Probably a later Mesolithic obliquely blunted point, c.8,000-5,000BC. Length 44.06mm, width 14.39mm, thickness c.5.1mm, weight 2.21g.

A re-touched flint flake tool of probable Mesolithic date. The implement has a horizontal upper edge and a small portion of the original core platform. There is a bulb of percussion and emanating ripples. The flint is roughly semi-circular and has been re-touched along its convex outer edge. On the left hand side (as you look at it) is a small semi-circular notch, which has been deliberately created by the removal of several small chips. Portions of the cortex remain on the right and left hand sides. The reverse is bulbous and has not been re-touched. The flint is a dark grey colour. I…

A probable flint arrowhead of ?late Neolithic date. The blade is triangular and has a central vertical arrise and two or three transvere flake scars radiating out to one of the two converging sides. A small portion of the cortex remains and is fractured, suggesting that the implement has been burnt. The barbs are uneven and have been formed by the removal of several small chips. The tang is short, rectangular in section, and has been squared off at the bottom. The reverse is unworked. The flint is mid grey in colour. It measures 27mm high by 20.4mm wide and 4.5mm thick. It weighs 2.90g.

A flint core, probably dating from the Neolithic period. No cortex remains on this flint core, all of the vertical surfaces showing scars from the removal of a number of broad blades. At the top is probable evidence of platform preparation. The platform itself is irregular and there is a possiblity that some flakes have been struck across it. At it's base, the core tapers to a wedge-shaped point. The flint is dark grey in colour and has no discernable patination. The piece measures 51.2mm high, 48mm wide and weighs 86.85g.

A flint blade of probable Neolithic date. The blade is sub-rectangular in plan and of trapezoidal section. At the proximal end of the ventral surface is a clear bulb-of-percussion and associated ripples. Both long sides show probable utilisation damage and there is also a small area of possible retouch. The distal end is irregular and also exhibits probable utilisation damage. The flint is unpatinated and dark brownish-grey in colour. The tool measures 40.5mm long, up to 14.4mm wide, 4.5mm thick and weighs 2.89g.

A flint blade of probable Neolithic date. The blade is roughly rectangular in plan and of sub-trapezoidal section. At the proximal end of the ventral surface is a clear bulb-of-percussion and diffuse ripples. Both long sides have a serrated appearance, possibly as a result of utilisation damage. A small amount of cortex remains on one edge of the lightly patinated, translucent grey flint. The distal end of the implement appears to have been broken off. The tool measures 30mm long, 15.2mm wide, 3.7mm thick and weighs 1.68g.
