Timeless are very pleased to offer a collection of very large leaf-bladed Medieval arrowheads, dating from the 9th to 15th centuries.
The first arrowhead is a large, beautifully preserved leaf-bladed arrowhead used throughout the High to Late Medieval period (10th - 16th centuries) and used both domestically and in warfare.
The middle piece was a very common form of the 11th - 12th centuries, displaying the typical shouldered blade of the the High Medieval period.
The earliest piece of the collection (the slender-bladed arrowhead on the right) may represent a type T1 (Jessop, A New Artefact Typology for the Study of Medieval Arrowheads, 1995), used for both hunting and warfare in the 9th and 10th centuries.
Mounted in a beautifully ‘aged’ oak plinth, the display is c.34cm long and around 16cm in height.
Note that we have built the display to that the arrowheads can easily be removed and handled, however, their tangs are not of uniform thickness, so they must be returned to the same positions (and it may take a little ‘jiggling’ to ensure they are all perfectly upright).
