This chert bifacial Leaf-shaped arrowhead, Type II, is from the site of Al-Hamriyah, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Al-Hamriya is a coastal shell midden site occupied ca. 6000-7000 BP. Scale approximate.
Leaf-shaped arrowheads were made by bifacial pressure flaking, creating an elongated, leaf-shaped point. If a stem can be identified, as in this example, it is classified as Type II. This artefact was made by expert bifacial transverse-parallel pressure flaking. The orientation of the angled scars is reverse from that commonly seen on parallel pressure-flaked points internationally.
The arrowhead is curated by the Sharjah Archaeology Authority, catalogue number EXS367.
