Trilobal arrowheads

Hello all

I recently bought some trilobal arrowheads from Neil, which I am slowly assembling the complete arrows with, and was wondering if they were used any further North than Greece....

Thanks

They were used on a huge scale on the Pontic Steppes by the Scythians.

Bronze trilobal arrowheads were used all over the place by the Romans, but that was well after the Bronze Age.

Thanks for the help, and Todd, that first set of armour is really interesting, is it bronze?

Hi Tim,
That one is iron (eeeww <_< ). Unlike the one I made for Dan:

Thanks James (if you're talking about Dan's)!
The hole pattern is based on the Scythian example, but the scales imbricate downward, whereas the Scythian helmet's go upwards. It was a tremendous amount of work to make; I see why they were reserved for elite charioteers.. :blink:
