Item:223785048319This beautiful little spearhead is a New Forest detector find and of the type found during excavation at Flag Fen, described by the late Prof. David Coombs in ANTIQUITY Vol 66, June 1992. See page 507, above. Of ROWLANDS type 2 with string loops. The spearhead is 85 mm long witha socket mouth of 14 mm. weight 19 g.Silicone moulds from the original. Cast using lost-wax investment. The size of the socket suggests a spear shaft, probably, of a single season growth of hazel or willow. Something very slender. A straight, dry withy would enable a long high trajectory.How would it have been used? i have yet to see a demonstration.Sadly, this is the last example of this type. No discounts. It makes an interesting comparison with my Co. Mayo spearhead - similar style, different scale, excellent condition original.
