The triangular point and the barbs show this has been worked by human hand. It is an early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead from about 4000 years ago.This point was originally mounted on the tip of a wooden shaft of an arrow used in hunting or even warfare.This one has been damaged, possibly because it hit a piece of hard bone and shattered.
