I can say that all material comes from North Antrim and North Londonderry. This piece I can accurately place, because it was found by a student on one of my excavation projects (the exact provenance will be made available to the purchaser).This arrowhead is 25mm by 15mm by 5mm (maximum thickness)There is no damage I can see Please note that my entire private collection was examined, recorded and evaluated by staff of the Ulster Museum, Belfast in the 1990s Condition: Excellent
