Re: weight and styles of historical arrowheads
- Thanks for the suggestions everyone - I've mailed Hector Cole and am
tracking down the Soar book - they look like very promising leads!
For those of you familiar with Medieval arrowheads, am I right in
assuming that socketed arrowheads were most common in that period?
Is this because they'd have less tendency to split the arrow shaft on
impact, despite being somewhat more difficult to make than a tang?
