The last traces of 2,000 year old warfare.

The soldiers, kings, and empires of ancient wars all eventually fell.

But these arrowheads remained.

Though this style of arrowhead was first used by nomadic tribes called the Scythians, many groups used these arrowheads to down their foes. The Greeks used them to wage war between rival city-states.

Perhaps these arrowheads even helped to build the Roman Empire.

Our ancient bronze arrowheads were discovered in the Eastern Mediterranean. Though they have a Scythian design, the exact people who used them remains a mystery.

Regardless, it's no mystery that these arrowheads have seen a lot of history, and can survive to see much more.

About Ancient Arrowheads:

Bronze became the defacto material for arrowheads around 2000 BC, replacing the cruder stone ones of the Neolithic Age. It was sturdy, easy to cast, and held a very sharp edge. Though cheaper iron arrow tips began to develop over the next few hundred years as well, bronze still held its ground well into the beginning of the Medieval period.

These bronze arrowheads came in many different forms. Some were flat, having one blade on each side, while others were three sided. The cruder ones were simply triangle or pyramid shaped, but the more complex ones were barbed—making the arrows nearly impossible to remove without immense pain and tissue damage.

Even into medieval times, archery remained a staple of warfare for centuries. Only in the 16th century did it finally become obsolete in Europe, due to the advancement of early firearms.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.

Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.

While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.

History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.

No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
