My 200th post!! – Bone-drill

I found this bone which I think belonged to a Muntjac deer.


Using a piece of flint I scored around the ends


to remove them both


Then I made wooden tips from Ash and Hazel for making fire by friction


My flint knapping skills are not good unfortunately but I can do most of the things I need to with the right flake.

One end of the flake in the video below I used as a scraper to shape the wooden plugs to fit into the ends of the bone and the sharpe edge of the flake I used to cut throught the wood.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
