Timeless are pleased to offer a large example of a stone-age arrowhead, dating around 6000 years old.
The arrowhead is knapped in flint and is of Saharan African origin. Despite the movie industry portraying the Sahara as a vast sea of shifting sand, much of it is actually bare, windswept baserock, and stone artefacts (such as axes, scrapers, blades and arrowheads) can remain at the surface for a very long time. Neolithic arrowheads display countless variations in shape, however, the main categories of flint arrowhead are:
- Triangle / Hollow-based triangle
- Petit Tranchet
- Barbed & tanged
The majority of the large arrowheads displayed here are leaf-shaped.
If you would like a specific arrowhead, please let us know the arrowhead number in our Contacts Section.
