This frame contains a collection of hand-forged Medieval arrowheads dating from the 12th -14th century AD.
The iron arrowheads are all tanged suggesting that they may have been used for either hunting or warfare in the high middle ages. The large arrowhead at the bottom of the frame is probably a derivative of an earlier Viking chisel-bladed arrowhead, while the two smaller pieces are both 12th - 13th century and of type T3 (Jessop - A New Artefact Typology for the Study of Medieval Arrowheads)
Tastefully framed in hand-finished bronze-effect pine, the outer frame measures c. 33cm x 27 cm
