Record ID: SWYOR-F29FD6
Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Leeds
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Beaker Period to Middle Bronze Age, about 2400 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on patinated light grey flint. It has covering, scaled low-angle retouch forming the triangular blade and obliquely ended tang. The barbs are missing; one break is a patinated snap across the barb. The other has signs of retouch over the broken area where the barb would have projected, so may have only ever had one barb, or was broken and reworked. The arrowhead is 20.2mm long, 14.7mm wide and 3.3mm thick. 0.79g.

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.
