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:

 

  • Leaf-shaped
  • Triangle / Hollow-based triangle
  • Petit Tranchet
  • Bifacial
  • Eccentric
  • Eiffel
  • Oblique
  • 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.
