      According to the site you sent us to, Hector Cole's site, a
      socketed 'bodkin' type arrowhead was known as far back as the
      Roman times (type nine bodkin). This pretty much agrees with
      everything I've ever heard as well. Cole's credentials as an
      expert in the field seem pretty solid. Anybody who does
      lectures and demonstrations in arrowsmithing for the Tower of
      London, and makes reproductions for major museums, such as the
      Danish, Royal Armories at Leeds, and The Mary Rose Trust must
      be pretty well accepted in historical/educational circles as
      an expert in the field. Thanks for the information, James.
