are these right arrow heads? I've never seen them before, at least NOT in the Roman era. and have searched for it in Bishop & Coulston's Roman military equipment but did not find it.

i have a question regarding this one too. it appears to me that the cage of the fire arrowhead in B&C's Roman Military Equipment has 3 'sticks' while this one has 4. is this right?

I understand the top arrow headsto be a bird hunting head, but could be wrong.
Apart from that I cannot recall if they were in use that far back offhand.
You can find both of these models and more at [url:4d9pmysg][/url].

I have had a look at the website collection of arrowheads and have not found any to resemble Roman military arrowheads with the exception of the two socketed bodkins, although the heavy bodkin has a head too small. I have visited Xanten museum, who have an excellent and extensive collection of arrowheads on display. They are extremely difficult to fotograph, though Sad . Saalburg also has a good display of military arrowheads. Museum het Valkhof has only one Roman arrowhead on display ( a tanged trilobate, like the ones I peddle) BUT is well worth visiting for all you coming over for the Roman Festival next weekend for its extensive glass and domestic goods. Good spearpoints and some excellent lockets, too.
