FINE AND RARE MEDIEVAL BROADHEAD ARROWHEAD FOR THE ENGLISH/WELSH LONGBOW

$325.00
See A Historical Guide to Medieval Arms and Armor, Bull. p.70. 2 ¼” length, with a ridged thickened point, backswept barbs, and butted seam conical socket. Complete and undamaged in exceptional preservation for the period. The longbow is particularly identified with the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) during which period it was a decisive factor in several battles, the most notable being Agincourt. By the second quarter of the 15th century, its importance declined as the French evolved tactics to break the ranks of the bowmen and plate armor coverage became more common and extensive. Bull notes that the example which accords best with this one was particularly effective for killing horses, the importance of which in battle, is a subject which historians have largely chosen to ignore.
