Late Bronze Age lunette spearhead from the River Thames – print and make

The spearhead this cut and stick printable is based on was found in the River Thames at Broadness in Kent in 1909 with a lot of other spearheads. The lunette design (cast with two crescent shaped gaps on either side of a raised rib) is purely aesthetic and suggests that the warrior culture of the late Bronze Age was a lot about looks and not necessarily about fighting (see this interesting blog post on another lunette spearhead from Micropasts at the British Museum).

Print this on the back of gold metallic card and curl the base round to make a tube. Stick this on the end of a garden cane to make a very stylish weapon! (click here to download the file as a pdf for printing)
