VM_365 Day 141Barbed and Tanged Arrowhead from Ramsgate

VM 141

Today’s VM-365 Day 141 image is of anĀ  Early Bronze Age, flint, barbed and tanged arrowhead found during excavations by Thanet Archaeological Society at Lord of the Manor, Ramsgate in 2012.

This example is almost as pristine as the day it was made, is unpatinated and has a date range of c. 2300-1600 BC. It is missing its left hand barb which may have been broken whilst it was being made.

The arrowhead was found within the topsoil while cleaning the stripped surface of the site prior to excavation.

With thanks to Nigel Macpherson-Grant for supplying the information and photo.
