Marden Henge II

Just a quick update. In a new piece in Past 68, Bishop etal report on the Neolihtic ripple flaked arowheads from Marden Henge which I mentioned before in a article on the aesthethics of lithics. An artefact similar to the ripple flaked arrowheads was found in the collection of Santon Warren in the Norwich Castle Museum.

This ‘long-tailed oblique’ arrowhead might not be as exquisite or even rippled, it does suggest that oblique Late Neolithic arrowheads might regularly have donned elongated tails/stems.
