This arrowhead is called a "transverse" type. This means that the sharp blade is on the long edge, and that it attached to the haft of the arrow on the narrow point. It was found along the banks of the Broomhead Reservoir in South Yorkshire. Several arrowheads have been found in this area, suggesting that it was a hunting area during the Neolithic period.
