Кремневый наконечник стрелы черешковый с шипами, бронзовый век Великобритании
A complete flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating to Early Bronze Age period (c. 2500 BC to c. 1500 BC). The arrowhead can be classified as Green (1980) Conygar Hill type. The arrowhead is trangular in shape and has been struck from a tertiary flake retaining no traces of the original cortex. The tang is elongated, sub-rectangular shape and is separated from the symetrical square barbs, shorter that itself. The flint shows a bifacial, covering, scaled and low angle retouch. This example was probably manufactured with soft hammer technique.

The flint is a translucent dark grey colour. The arrowhead measures 27.95mm in length, 23.54mm in width, 3.89mm in thick and weighs 1.98g.

Similar flint barbed-and-tanged arrowheads are associated with the Beaker phase of the Early Bronze Age c. 2500 BC-1500 BC
