A flint borer of probably Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, about 4000 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on the distal end of a thick flake of golden brown flint and is trapezoidal in plan, with a convex longest edge at the distal end. The corner at each end of the long curved edge has been worked to form a point for boring holes. The dorsal face is two previous removal scars. The distal right side and the right distal end have been retouched with short, semi-abrupt, sub-parallel removals. Another removal perpendicular to the tip produces a square working edge. At the left side are three r…

County: Calderdale
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of soft but well bedded limestone, apparently natural, but recorded because it is an "exotic" stone, not naturally occuring in the findspot area. It is sub-rectangular in plan and section. The edges are soft and rounded and there are some areas of pitting where there are small holes, probably caused by softer elements in the stone disolving. It has been suggested to be a hammerstone, but doubts have been cast on whether the stone is hard or strong enough for this purpose. Its prescence in the area may be related to the building of the nearby reservoir. It is 98mm long, 31.6mm …

A flint lithic implement, a probable chopper of Mesolithic date, about 9000 BC - 4000 BC. It is formed from a secondary chunk ofmottled light grey flint which is opaque and has one face covered in cortex. There are also large chalky inclusions. It is sun-rectangular in plan, wedge shaped at one end, and sub-rectangular in scross-section. There are at least five removals from the tapering end. These are struck towards the main body of the object and form a unifacial working edge (as distinct from a chopping tool which is bifacial). Onlt the one end of the tool is worked. Examples of ch…
