Anglo-Saxon Spearhead

It's rare for anything Anglo-Saxon to make it onto the antiquities market and remain affordable. This lovely little iron speahead is an exception.

 

Measuring only c. 9cm long, the spearhead dates from the 6th-8th century A.D. and was probably used to hunt small game and fowl. 

 

While it shows many signs of its age, the spearhead is a rare find and will make a great addition to any collection.

Provenance
