Summary: Weapons

Key dates:

At this time leaf and lozenge shaped arrow and javelin heads were developed. These were attached to shafts using resin, and were sometimes reinforced by twine. The hollow scraper may have been used for stripping and whittling the rods which were used for shafts. There is no evidence of bows being used in Ireland at this time.
