Iron and bronze...

Recommended Posts

Wow, that iron arrowhead is extraordinary! I don't know anything about arrowhead types, but for some reason my brain is thinking "medieval".

Nice little piece of bronze sculpture too. 👍

Yes, these twisted shank types are medieval, not ancient. Here’s a site I use for medieval iron arrowheads. If you scan way down on the linked page, you’ll see some similar.




I would assume the shank was twisted in order to work-harden it and make it less prone to bending?
