Excavations carried out in Beauvais over the last few decades have resulted in a remarkable collection of objects made from hard materials of animal origin (bone, antler, ivory). Although this collection is associated with cuttings and bears direct witness to the presence of craftsmen, it has not yet been the subject of a comprehensive study that could provide food for thought on the development of the town from its origins to the contemporary period, or on the lifestyles of its inhabitants. Through the description and analysis of a small number of these objects, this article is a plea for such a study to be carried out in the years to come.
