Late Mesolithic - Early Neolithic c.7000-5000 B.C. A nice and scarce flint "Petit Tranchet" Chisel tipped arrowhead found during an Archaeological excavation in Lancashire in the 1960's and with the Archaeologists reference label still attached. Skillfully fashioned from a pleasant light and dark grey flint, nicely worked on either side to form the characteristic "V" shaped body with a curved chisel edged blade. Tranchets arrowheads were effectively reverse mounted with the pointed end fixed into the arrow shaft and the wide razor sharp chisel tipped edge designed for causing maximum wounding and blood loss in order to bring down larger prey much more efficiently, this assymetric example also has a pointed barb to one side, not only to maximise wounding but help prevent the animal shaking loose the arrow tip whilst trying to evade capture]. A nice example, totally intact and in very nice condition with good surface ageing, a nice example, 28mm long x 19mm across blade edge.
