      No, these points were still socketed but there was hole in the socket
      where the point could be pinned to the wooden shaft. There were, of
      course, tanged points too. Does anyone out there have a chronology of
      arrowheads? Sockets seem to be late middle ages with tangs earlier.
      When does the first bodkin appear? 1200?

      For some examples of different types of heads, you could visit the
      Hector Cole website at:
