A complete flint pickaxe, probably dating from the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000 BC to c. 4,001 BC). This would appear to be a double-ended implement, with a pick at one end and an axe-like blade at the other. Most of the surface of the original nodule has been removed, but one side in particular retains a significant portion of its cortex. The narrowest point is at the pick end, where the surfaces have been deliberately sloped to point, which exhibits signs of wear. The sides gradually diverge from this point, the implement reaching a maximum width approximately one third of the way…

Record ID: BH-4C0382
Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Mesolithic flint microlith. The piece is sub-triangular, with a horizontal break (possibly deliberate) at the wider end. A longitudinal ridge extends down the centre of the dorsal surface, creating a triangular profile. Blunting appears to be confined to the longer side, where it has occurred along the entire length. The point has been cut off, removing the bulb-of-percussion, the original position of which is indicated by the direction of the ripples on the ventral surface. The flint is patinated and bluish-grey. Length: 25.4mm; width: 12.8mm; thickness: 2.1mm; weight: 0.62g.
