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.

Record ID: BH-D1B5D0
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A flint core of probable late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. The core has a roughly semi-circular striking platform at the top and a bulb of percussion at the bottom. There are three narrow flake removal scars at the top, just below the striking platform, and a further small horizontal scar. The rest of the perimeter of the flint is unworked and it would appear that this irregularly-shaped core, which seems to have been for the production of narrow blades, was rejected fairly quickly. Portions of the cortex also remain intact. It measures 28.2mm wide by 17.2mm thick and 60.1mm hig…

Record ID: BH-D20C48
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A flint core of probable late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. The core has a single platform of roughly semi-circular form. It has been poorly prepared, and was probably rejected fairly quickly. The flat vertical face is still largely covered in its cortex, although some attempt has been made to remove this. The convex vertical face has three or four narrow flake removal scars which are consistent with the production of narrow blades. The surface of the flint has a light greyish blue patina. It measures 29.3mm wide by 17.2mm thick and 44.6mm high. It weighs 36.19g.

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.

County: Central Bedfordshire

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…

As viewed in plan, it has a pointed butt and a curved cutting edge, one side of which has a transverse flake scar. The sides are convex in profile. There are small areas of iron staining on each face.

A double-ended worked flint implement, probably an awl or point. It has been made from a large, probably naturally formed flake of pale brownish-grey flint, which is roughly lozenge-shaped. It has a glossy patina. The ventral surface has elliptical waves of percussion. Small, irregular flakes have been removed from almost the entire dorsal surface, although two small areas of nodule cortex remain. One point is flaked from the dorsal side with small, flat flakes along one edge and deeper, conchoidal flaking along the other. The other end has been flaked less extensively on both the vent…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable strike a light of post medieval date, consisting of an oval shaped worked flint with a rectangular piece of lead wrapped around its centre. It measures 27mm in length and 20mm in width. The lead is perhaps to allow the flint to be held more easily. This strike a light is likely to be circa 18th century in date.
