Arrowhead: a typical barbed and tanged arrow-tip from the early bronze age. It would have been fixed to the shaft using wool twine
and birch bark glue. This one seems to be made from grey Wolds flint – flint does not occur naturally in the South Pennines
and was traded across country. These arrowheads are often found damaged from use. This undamaged one, from Midgley Moor,
may be a hunting loss or a ritual deposition.
