Overview of Arrowheads and Their Uses
While there are countless variations and designs, the most basic definition for an arrowhead is that it's a sharpened projectile tip used for making spears, arrows, tridents and other deadly hunting weapons. For thousands of years, they were used as a vital tool of survival by people from all parts of the world. From the Native Americans to the ancient Greek Empire, civilizations everywhere depended on the use of arrowheads to hunt and acquire food. With such a long, rich history, it's no wonder collecting arrowheads is such a popular hobby.
Typically, arrowheads are crafted and sharpened out of stone, however metal, wood and even bone arrowheads have been discovered as well. In fact, many Roman arrowheads were crafted from hardened metals, such bronze, copper and steel.
Connecting the Arrowhead
Arrowheads are usually attached to the shaft an arrow using a tang, cap or by inserting the blunt-end into a split in the shaft. If the arrowhead is attached with the split-shaft method, it's usually reinforced by wrapping wire, straw or some other tough yet versatile material around it. This helps secure the arrowhead to the shaft, preventing it from slipping out of place.
The purpose of an arrowhead is simply to create a more effective hunting weapon. Imagine how well an arrow or spear would work without a sharp tip. Not good at all, right? With a sharp arrowhead on the end of it, however, it becomes a more effective and deadly weapon.
Learning and appreciating the past is as important as history itself. It's said that if you don't learn about the past, mistakes made in history will repeat themselves. Each arrowhead carries a long rich history and story behind it, dating back to an era before modern weapons were invented. If you find an arrowhead in the U.S., you may be excited knowing it was possibly used by a Native American hundreds of years ago as a tool for their survival.
