Record ID: SWYOR-8A45D8
Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Calderdale
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint retouched flake of Mesolithic to Neolithic date, about 9000 BC - 2200 BC. It is formed on a secondary flake of mottled light grey flint with cortex on most of the dorsal face. It is oval, with a few removals on the dorsal face. There is some platform preparation, and the right edge is retouched from the ventral face with short, sub-parallel, low-angle removals seemingly to form a cutting edge or knife. A long blade was also removed along the right side on the dorsal face, to make the utilised edge thinner. It is 26.2mm long, 18mm wide and 4.2mm thick. 2.3g.

A piece of black jet, or jet-like material, recovered and recorded because it is not naturally occuring in the area and may be an exotic material curated by human activity. As such, it dates from the Neolithic Period onwards. Worked flints have also been recovered from the location. The jet is not obviously worked or shaped, but has natural flat facets and what appears to be a conchoidal fracture. It is roughly a pointed oval shape and triangular in cross section. It leaves a dark brown mark on paper and is not cold to the touch. It is 56.6mm long, 29mm wide and 22.7mm thick. 13.9g. Co…
