Saxon Arrowheads  
Ref SA 1

Price £100

Postage £5

The six arrowheads in this display are typical of the Saxon and early medieval period.

1) Socketed hunting head. - This head is a copy of the arrowhead in the Jorvik Museum in York. It was used for hunting but was also used as a war head.

2) Tanged forked hunting head. - This is an earlier version of the medieval type 6 forked head and was used for hunting birds and small game. If the arrow missed the target it would not bury itself in the grass or undergrowth and would be easy to locate.

3) Tanged warhead. - This is the fore-runner of the needle bodkin and was used to pierce the mail worn by most of the warriors at that time.

4) Chippenham type 1. - This is a broad head used for hunting.

5) Chippenham type 2. -This head is similar to the type 1 and was also used for hunting.

6) Chippenham type 3. - Another version of the type 1 head. It could be used for hunting or war.
The last three heads are copies of heads found in the Chippenham area. Chippenham is a Saxon town and one of the bases of Alfred the Great.

Medieval Arrowheads  

 

Ref MA 1

Price £125

Postage £5

The arrowheads in this display are typical of the medieval period. They consist of the following arrowheads :-
1) Devizes swallowtail broadhead. - This is a typical hunting broadhead used against large game such as deer or boar. It is designed to inflict the maximum damage to the animal through its long cutting edges causing massive haemorrhaging so that the animal will not run far after being shot. This head is based on the arrowhead in Devizes museum.

2) Small straight broadhead. - This is also a typical hunting head of the period that was used on smaller game producing the same effect as the swallowtail broadhead.

3) Forked hunting head, Type 6. - This hunting head was used against birds and small game. The forked shape of the head fulfils two purposes, a) When it hits a bird the rotating motion of the head tears into the feathers and brings the bird down if in flight, b) If you miss when shooting at small game the head prevents the arrow from burying itself in the long grass or undergrowth making it easy to locate.

4) London Museum type 16 war head. - This head is based on the heads of this type in the London Museum collection and the Westminster arrow. It is a war head of the later medieval period used to pierce plate armour.

5) War bodkin long type 10. - This war head is the most common of the medieval period. It was used against knights in plate armour and will penetrate armour up to two millimetres in thickness.

6) Needle bodkin type 7. - This war head was developed to pierce mail with devastating results and was used against lightly armoured foot soldiers throughout the medieval period.
