See Arms & Armour of the Crusading Era 1050-1350 #89m. Forged iron, 4” length with broad curved barbs on slightly tapered bolster over butted seam conical socket. Excavated and professionally conserved. The socket base with some chips/losses. Very rare example from a collection of javelins of the Medieval period. Javelins were lighter than spears, intended to be thrown. Effective in skirmishes, they were used against shield walls where they imbedded in the wood shield compromising the effective use of the shield. Owning their scarcity and perishability, surviving examples are rare.
