Item:2642878178045 High Quality Neolithic Arrowheads in a Selection of Styles Material: FlintAge: 4000BCArea: Sahara Types included are; Leaf: The leaf is the most common of all Saharan flints, although a very basic design it is strong, versatile and extremely useful. Produced in a wide range of sizes it was able to be used in the hunting of anything from fish and birds to large land animals. Often seen with serrations or notches running the full length of both blades allowing it to cause greater damage on impact and also be used as a hand held cutting tool. Barbed and Tanged: Barbed and Tanged arrowheads mark the pinnacle of Neolithic point design. A central tang allows for sturdy attachment to the arrow shaft and the two barbs either side provide maximum penetration and retention of the weapon in its prey. Usually on the smaller scale but not uncommon upto 60mm these arrowheads are extremely diverse coming in a myriad of slightly differing designs. Triangle: Some of the most basic designs but a very efficient arrowhead. Wide base for securing to the arrow shaft and tapering to a sharp and strong point. The triangle arrowhead could be re-chipped and reshaped into almost any other type of arrowhead should the need arise. Bi-Face: Bi-Faced arrowheads are made from flakes knapped in a deliberate way from a core. The cores were pre-shaped so that a pointed triangular flake was produced upon striking that required minimal modification to be made into a usable arrowhead. Despite minimal edge knapping these arrowheads are important for the fact that they represent the efficiency and ingenuity of Neolithic man. Eiffel / Moroccan: Named for their profile likeness to the Eiffel Tower in France these arrowheads are also occasionally known as 'Moroccan Points'. Usually orange, brown or black in colour and often made of both stone and flint. Many slight variations exist along a common design. I will include with these Neolithic arrowheads a three page A4 printout containing a basic arrowhead 'type-guide', see item pictures for details. Any questions please ask and I will do my best to answer quickly and correctly. An ideal item for anyone who has an interest in the past and would make an excellent, unusual present. The Neolithic period was the latter part of the Stone-Age and even over-laps with the Bronze age in certain regions. It began when man ceased the nomadic way of life and started settling in agricultural communities. As well as hunting, they started keeping livestock and growing crops in annual cycles. It lasted until the first metal tools were introduced 4-5000 years ago with the Iron and Bronze Ages. The Neolithic period provides a plethora of collectible pieces, each unique and hand-crafted thousands of years ago. To hold a Neolithic arrowhead knowing it was used in the basic, everyday survival of our earliest ancestors is a wonderful experience. Saharan Neolithic Arrowheads show an incredible variety of styles and were used in almost all areas of life at that time.
