Description

A set of three arrows of identical size and with very similar decoration, but not belonging to the same set. They are undoubtedly from the same workshop and armory, though.

Fitted with facetted bodkin type heard, optimized for armor-piercing. Two heads are square in cross-section, the last is more of a flattened lozenge in cross-section. 

The reed foreshafts are wrapped with sinew for reinforcement and painted with geometric designs.

The tails are similarly wrapped and decorated and terminate in bulbous nocks.
