Iron Spear/Arrow heads

These ancient iron projectile points are from the Swat valley in Northwest Pakistan.  More specifically, they are from the vicinity of Udegram, the site of an historic battle in the early 11th century AD.  There are relatively few references available on ancient near eastern  weapons, so attributing them precisely is problematic.



The use of iron arrowheads began in India around 1,000 BC.  Most of these points are probably from the the battle of Udegram, though some may be considerably older. 

Many of these points are virtually identical in form to medieval iron spear points of the 11th-13th centuries collected in Germany and elsewhere in Europe.

 


Bronze Arrowheads


These ancient bronze arrowheads are from near Bajawar in Northwest Pakistan, near the border with Afghanistan.

The use of bronze arrowheads goes back much further than the use of iron points, and copper arrowheads have been found in Europe dating back to before 2,000 BC.  It probably reasonable to assume that most of these bronze points were made between the 7th century BC and the 3rd century AD.

We have attributed these arrowheads as accurately as possible, based on their form, but we would be happy to hear from you if you can offer any further insights.
