Medieval Arrowhead Collection
Timeless are pleased to offer a superb collection of iron arrowheads of the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries AD.
The earliest (furthest right), described by Jessop as a ‘Type H3 hunting arrow’ was forged some time during the 13th century. It displays the archetypal long barbs of the broadhead, designed to produce the maximum amount of damage when hitting flesh.
The second arrow is a Jessop type M9, with the thick, diamond-shaped tapering blade and wide socket typical of a 14th century military arrow.
Lastly, the small arrow on the left of the group is a 15th century warhead, Jessop type M2, and was crafted to penetrate the plate and chainmail armour of the period.
Acquired by Timeless on the UK antiquities market, 2018. Formerly from a private collection of a gentleman, formed between 1965-1975.
