Star Carr

Mesolithic site


This mesolithic lakeside settlement, dated to around 7500BC was investigated by Professor Grahame Clark (Excavations at Starr Carr: An Early Mesolithic Site at Seamer near Scarborough, Yorkshire -Cambridge University Press 1954), while Jacquetta Hawkes calls it 'the most informative Middle Stone Age site in Britain'
Starr Carr has since been reburied.

Edit: New evidence suggests the site dates from 8700BC and was seasonally occupied over a course of 200-300 years
