Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201733016761 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge A late Bronze Age European spearhead, dating to 1000 BC.A particularly elegant example of a Bronze Age spearhead, with a ridged blade and round socket, perforated on each side for attachment to a wooden haft.The remarkably vast array of late Bronze Age weaponry uncovered around Europe suggests that it was a period of considerable violence and upheaval. Society at this time was dominated by a warrior caste, these paramount leaders were likely regarded as semi-supernatural beings, proving their worth by their physical prowess in battle, raiding neighbours and capturing booty.Also remarkable is the sheer vibrancy and wealth displayed in some burials; golden jewellery, finely carved ivory and great chariots have all been uncovered. This culture of the warrior lord was also one deeply concerned with image. So it is with this stunning weapon, it is so sleek and graceful that one cannot simply dismiss it as a mere functional item. The smith took care in crafting its refined form, and in that sense it seems to reflect the personality of the late Bronze Age, the arrogance and confidence of the warrior elite.
