Hi,

here a celtic arrow head, found in April 2008. It?s an late period Hallstatt time type 650-475 BC.

It?s the only one in my collection in such a good condition.

MrSimpson;

Very nice, by the time I get this posted, there may be a dozen additional congratulatory notes.

Tell me, (I presume it is bronze,) why is there a hole in the haft socket, on the one side?

I have 3 compound bows and several type of hunting heads, this looks equally as efficient as a modern arrow head.

MrSimpson;

Tell you what, Homer, if I was the guy using that high technology, and for its time, it is super tech, I would be able to tell how well the haft fit and then I would use some pitch or bitumen and let the surplus bleed out the hole - that will, also, tell me how good a job I had done.

What do you think.... likely? I know, from experience, when gluing knochs to an aluminum arrow, glue can really get around! This could help control things.

That arrow head is just a teaser! Funny

GIVE US MORE!

@goldigger
Respect  Great that?s a very good idea how the hole is made for ! I will meet an Archeologist next week and ask him. I am quite sure that he will tell me the same.

And...yes...there is some more to show  Grin just wait  Wink

nice find,well done,love the condition,nice dark patina,looks more bronze age to me,the hole is for a pin or nail to fix it to the wooden shaft,or stick,could also be a votive offering(to the gods),did you find it near a river?most votive finds come cliffs or river banks,I found a late bronze age knife years ago next to the Isar river in south germany,and weeks later a friend found 2 amazeing large bronze arrow heads,near the same spot,,,will post a few pics of my finds soon,,

MrSimpson;

de nada!

I was curious. I can not take credit for a searching explanation, when the question was idle curiosity! Funny

Or could I?
