Arrowhead???
« on: February 18, 2019, 06:52:49 PM »
Found this thin bronze arrow shaped piece at inchbare yesterday. It isn’t tanged and it’s very thin  but it is  serrated down the edges. Possibly an arrowhead?  Any thoughts?

Could be Jim. Worth reporting!!  I found this years ago in Oxfordshire and thought it might be an arrowhead but PAS identified it as a bronze age razor. It has the same raised ridge down the centre like your find!!

I am no expert but certainly looks like an arrowhead.  Well found.

Well unearthed! Looks the part; got to be in with a shout. Serrated edges and no tang? No point either and I doesn't look like it's broken off. Looks like a bronze arrow tail too. Part of an old, small weathervane or decorative item or trophy... modern or ancient?    :)
