Flint arrowhead from Ballahasney, Jurby
Unlike the fine microlith chips and blades, this large flint arrowhead is from the later Mesolithic ‘Heavy-Blade’ tradition of flintmaking (also known as Bann; from similar finds originally found along the valley of the River Bann in Ireland), and was found at Ballahasney, Jurby. Attached to a length of wood, this would be an effective hunting weapon, used to stab or spear fish, wildfowl and other animals.

Dimensions: Length 5cm width 3.8cm
