A small Middle Bronze Age copper alloy barbed and tanged arrowhead, 20mm in length, of probable Middle - Late Bronze Age date (c. 1300 - 800 BC). The arrowhead has considerable abrasion and loss to the blade edges and tip, however it is clearly of triangular form. The cross sectional profile is flat, slightly elliptical but without a prominent midrib. The trapezoidal tang is splayed and relatively wide (6.5mm) compared to the overall width of the head (12.6mm).

Incomplete flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Beaker period (c.2500-1500 BC). The arrowhead is triangular in plan: 27 mm in length, 23.5 mm in width at the base, 4 mm thick and weighs 2.4 g. The pointed tip is missing. Both faces have been thinned by the removal of many small, shallow, invasive pressure-flakes. Two notches have been formed by pressure flaking at the base of the triangle, to form the tang and two barbs, and the two notches carefully shaped by further pressure flaking. The two barbs have obliquely shaped ends and the tang is square, placing the arrowhead w…

Complete barbed and tanged arrow head of Early Bronze-age date (2350-1501 BC): - of unpatinated dark grey flint with paler inclusions. The "blank" for this arrowhead was a hard hammer struck tertiary flake, then pressure flaked to shape, the dorsal face has semi-invasive retouch, leaving the central area unmodified, the ventral face has rather steep pressure retouch, also leaving the central face unmodified, as a result the choice of orientation can be ascertained, unusually, the bulb of percussion is towards one of the tangs, as evidenced by the fissures radiating away from the (now m…

Six incomplete knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating to 2500 to 1500 BC. An incomplete knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead bifacially worked. It is sub-triangular and symmetrical in plan. It has two complete rounded ended notches in the base, flanking the central tang with a barb at either side. The tang is squared and slightly longer than the barb. The point is missing due to an old break. The arrowhead has invasive shallow parallel semi-abrupt retouch on both faces around the edges with unretouched area in the centre of both sides. The dorsalside has traces of corte…

Complete Middle Bronze Age copper alloy barbed and tanged arrowhead. Finely cast with multiple fine file marks on both faces which have chamfered edges to the blade and a shallow mid-rib. There is a slight casting-flash one one side of the pointed-oval sectioned tang. Traces of iron-staining over all. Length 54.5mm. Width 22mm. 3mm thick. Weighs 7.63g. 1275-1140 BC. A bronze arrowhead from the Penard hoard (a secure Bronze Age of c. 1275-1140 BC), was discussed in Archaeologica 71 (p. 138), where it was suggested that although the barbed and tanged form was used in flint from the Earl…

Grey flint possible arrowhead fragment, as kindly identified by the finder. A thin flake fragment with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a rippled ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows two converging edges. A straight edge opposite the longest of these is lost to a recent break. The surface bears a pale grey patina suggesting the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. If indeed an arrowhead, the triangular form suspected would ally this to Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age artefacts. Suggested date…

An incomplete copper-alloy arrowhead or spearhead of unknown date, probably middle Bronze Age date, c. 1500 - 1000 BC or possibly later into the Roman period. Only the tip of the spear remains which is triangular in plan and lozenge in section with mid-ribs. No socket is present. An insufficient portion of the spear remains to prove diagnostic, therefore a specific type cannot be attributed.

Barbed and tanged arrowhead, of Green's (1980) Kilmarnock type, with the pointed tang exceeding the length of the barbs, all three elements appear to be undamaged, the point however is broken transversely in antiquity. Both faces are entirely covered with invasive pressure flaking, overlapping neatly at the centre, with good symmetry overall. The flint is pale grey, with small, fine, white inclusions, both faces have small, pale iron stains. Early Bronze Age.

An Early Bronze Age flint barbed and tanged arrowhead, probably dating to c. 2,400-2,100BC. Bifacially worked teritiary flake of mottled grey-brown flint, worked into a triangular point with sub-rectangular tang, the arrowhead features no barbs. The retouch is exhibited around the perimeter of the arrowhead, sub-parallel and low angle generally, although becoming semi-abrupt towards the point of the arrowhead on the dorsal face. On the ventral face this retouch is short, whilst its extent on the dorsal face is uncertain, with it obscured by a large removal at the tanged end, which almo…

A complete flint, Late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age, tanged arrowhead, 2350-1700BC. The object comprises a pointed oval blade that has been pressure flaked to shape. There are long, scaled, intrusive removals across the surface of the object to shape the piece. The cutting edges are then retouched by short, scaled removals. The piece has an assymetrical lozenge shaped cross section, with one face more triangular than the other. See also NMS-C33616 a Green, S. (1980) Sutton type A.

Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged arrowhead, of mottled grey flint with some faint iron oxide stains to both faces. Made from a rather thick flake for an arrowhead, with a slight "S" shaped profile, it is bifacially flaked around the periphery with steep pressure flake removals, leaving the original tertiary faces of the flake unmodified in the middle of both faces. The tang is much longer than the barbs, one of which is broken at its extremity, as is the tip of the point. The bulb of percussion has been removed and is unusually oriented to the right tang when viewed from the ventral …
