Spears were one of the most common personal weapons used in the Stone Age, and they remained in use as important military and hunting implements until the advent of firearms. They may be seen as the ancestor of such military weapons as the lance, the pilum, the halberd, the naginata, the glaive, the bill, and the pike. One of the earliest weapons fashioned by human beings and their ancestors, the spear is still used for hunting and fishing, and its influences still may be seen in contemporary military arsenals as the rifle-mounted bayonet.
This spear head makes an interesting collectible. Especially for a natural history buff. Would be display item in a showcase of ancient weaponry… Make an interesting curio, accent piece, paper weight, or gift for a rock hound.
