Record ID: NARC-024703
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron spearhead of Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is in two pieces and is composed of a leaf-shaped blade with a flattened lozenge section. The tip of the blade is missing due to an old and abraded break. The lower end has been broken and separated. The end is heavily corroded and therefore any possible split aspect is not visible. This is a feature typical of Early Medieval spearheads. The blade terminates in and old break with the upper pointed aspect missing. While typologies exist for spearheads these are based on finds from graves and it is likely that this find p…

An incomplete iron spearhead of Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is the mid-section of a lanceolate or similar form. The blade is bifurcated and reminiscent of Bronze Age Lunate spearheads without the midrib. However the overall outline when complete would likely have been lanceolate. The blade terminates in a transverse break approximately half way up the length of the blade. From the lower portion of the blade the integral socket is partially retained. The retained portion of the socket is split and folded. This is a feature typical of Early Medieval spearheads. While typologies ex…

Iron vessel fragment. Cast everted rim and part of the upper wall of a cauldron with a rounded body.

A complete iron Arrowhead of medieval date (AD 1200-1400). The arrowhead is a barbed and tanged form with a central, square section integral shaft, projecting from the proximal edge. The objects integral tapering tang, a triat usually seen in European arrowheads, unlike the English arrowheads which were usually socketed. Small barbed arrowheads could be used for hunting game, as they were designed to remain inside the body of the prey, but they were also firmly fixed into the arrow shaft so that it could be removed from the prey and reused. This example suggests that it was used for …
