VIKING 'GAR' SPEAR
Hand-forged sometime between the 10th and 12th centuries A.D., this beautifully preserved Viking Spearhead displays a tapering tubular socket with attachment hole, a facetted neck and a slender, lozenge sectioned triangular blade.
At 27cm long, the spear probably represents a 'Gar' spear - a common Viking weapon used as a thrusting spear or thrown at close quarters.
Mounted on textured steel and measuring and around 20cm high, this amazing historical artefact could be yours to own today.
Acquired by Timeless on the UK Antiquities market, 2019. Formerly in a private Austrian collection.
