4 3/8” length, finely forged iron with slightly rounded cutting edges and cusped bottom. Cylindrical base and tapered tang. Vikings were surprise raiders. They preyed on common people who, if warned, would wear protective garments. Thus, this is a flesh cutting arrow, made for the classic Viking raid which started with the savage slaughter of anyone encountered, until the remaining victims ceased resisting and capitulated to their demands which included seizing anything of value and often, enslaving those fit for the market or their own use.
