You saw my lovely little leaf-shaped arrowhead from yesterday afternoon and thanks for all the kind and appreciative comments. I needed to check the ID but I also found a chisel-shaped transverse (petit tranchet type) arrowhead. A first for me and the two show both ends of the Neolithic hunting armoury. I'm told one should think of the transverse arrowhead as the dum-dum bullet of the day :shock:

They range from beautiful craftsmanship to 'blimey, that's gonna hurt!' :lol:

Just realised I put the chisel arrowhead upside down - the wide end is the bit that hits you first :o :thumbdown:
