B1417

Regular price $250.00 Sale

4 3/4" length, well-forged iron of leaf shape with spread foot and tapered tang. Flat both sides which were characteristic of Viking arrows used for surprise raids where the victims wore no protective clothing. Vikings were surprise raiders who preyed on common people who, if warned, would wear protective garments. Thus, this arrow was made for the classic Viking raid which started with the savage slaughter of anyone encountered, until the remaining victims ceased resisting and capitulated to their demands which included seizing anything of value and often, enslaving those fit for the market or their own use.
