The Loshult arrows: cultural relations and chronology

Larsson, Lars LU (2009) In Chronology and Evolution within the Mesolithic of North-West Europe. Procceedings of an International Meeting, Cambrige, May 30th–June 1st 2007 p.131-139
Abstract
In 1951 two arrows were found close to each other in the bog Lilla Loshults Mosse in northernmost Scania, southern Sweden. These arrows are of major importance for the study of the early Mesolithic as the arrowheads, including points and barbs made of flint, were still attached to the shafts. The arrows have been dated to the Early Boreal chronozone by pollen analyses of the attached peat.

The arrows were treated with preservatives that have made radiocarbon datings particularly difficult. These new dates are presented as well as the typology of the microliths and retouched micro-blades. The new dates and the dating by pollen analyses fits very well together.
