Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Calderdale
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A mesolithic flint microlith dating from 8000 BC - 4000 BC. It is a damaged Group B geometric microlith of trapezoid shape. It is formed on mottled opaque white and grey flint and is water worn. There is short, sub-parallel, abrupt retouch on the long side, and some similar visible on the opposite edge, but damaged by pieces of the flint missing. It is 14.3mm long, 6.1mm wide and 3,3mm thick. 0.2g.

Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint, late Mesolithic probable Group B geometric microlith, dating from 8000 BC - 4000 BC. It is a scalene triangle in plan, but unusual that the long edge is also the striking platform. It is formed on a tertiary flake of translucent light yellow grey coloured flint which was partially patinated before being worked. There is short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch on the dorsal face at the proximal end. The microlith is 3.8mm long, 9mm wide and 2.5mm thick. 0.06g. The unusual arrangement of retouch on the proximal end could suggest that it is, in fact, platform preparation on a debitage flake.

A flint late Mesolithic Group B geometric microlith, dating from 8000 BC - 4000 BC. It is rhomboid in plan, having oblique ends and parallel straight sides, and is rectangular in section. It is formed on a tertiary blade of translucent light yellow grey coloured flint. There is short, parallel, abrupt retouch on the right side. The left side is damaged, with two notches where pieces are missing, presumably post-depositional damage. The microlith is 12.2mm long, 5.3mm wide, 0.8mm thick. 0.06g.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
44 flint debitage blades probably dating from the Mesolithic period, about 9000 BC - 4000 BC. The debitage includes translucent light grey flint and dark grey opaque chert of poor quality. All are secondary or tertiary pieces, and some have some patination. Some pieces display platform preparation. Many of the blades and bladelets are snapped; this could be post-depositional damage.

Object type: MICROBURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint probable microburin dating from the Mesolithic Period, about 9000 BC - 4000 BC. It is formed on a light grey flint tertiary blade. It is sub-oval in plan with a square proximal end. It has a snapped oblique distal end, with some removals to create the notch at the right side of the distal end. There is also some platform preparation. The microburin is 6.5mm long, 4mm wide and 1.8mm thick. 0.06g. This is an unusually small example. A microburin is the waste produce from notching and then snapping a blade to create a microlith.

A flint Mesolithic microlith; a Group B geometric crescent shaped example, dating from 8000 BC - 4000 BC. It is formed on light grey translucent flint; a secondary blade with a small area of cortex on the right side. The right side is the curved edge and it has short, abrupt, sub-parallel retouch at both ends, leaving the cortex in the centre. The microlith is 27.9mm long, 8.5mm wide and 2.9mm thick. 0.5g. It has been identified by Stephen Poole as a Star Carr type.

A flint retouched blade of Mesolithic date, about 10000 - 4000 BC. It is formed on a tertiary flint blade of yellow grey flint, and is sub-rectangular in plan and triangular in cross-section. There is short, sub-parallel, abrupt retouch in one place on the left side at the distal end. The distal end is stepped and irregular, showing that this piece is not a microburin. The bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end. It is 16.4mm long, 7.6mm wide and 3.9mm thick. 0.48g.
