Unique ID: PAS-4A0831

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Early Bronze Age Arrowhead.


Tip sharp and intact, small amount of cortex on remaining barb no evidence of a tang so I have classed this as a transitional piece between the late neolithic and the early bronze age. It shows no evidence of bifacial working but has been made using soft materials for the tools.
